Owensboro's favorite time of the year is this week. The International Barbecue Festival in downtown Owensboro. 10 - 15,000 people will occupy the city. You know, for the last three years all the construction downtown keeps the BBQ Fest folks hoppin' to find where to place everyone. Best thing to do is just head downtown and just wander airmlessly, which I do all the time!! There will be food, music, crafts, classic cars and carnival rides. WBKR will be there, too. Here's the schedule of activities.
