Kentucky Remembers sponsored by Independence Bank and the Gold Star Mothers will take place this weekend at Smothers Park.


Kentucky Remembers is a day to honor and remember our nation's heroes and first responders, held here in Owensboro, Kentucky.  The event always takes place the same Saturday in November as the Veterans Day Parade.

Kentucky Remembers began as a simple concert in 2012 where the Owensboro community united together to show love and support for the Mullins family after their middle son SPC Brandon Scott Mullins  was killed in Afghanistan on August 25, 2011 when his unit was attacked by an IED.  Since, the event has grown into a 5k, 1 mile Walk, and a Fun Run for Little Warriors starting at 8 a.m.


Kentucky Remembers wraps up this incredible event with an evening concert at Owensboro's Riverpark Center at 7:00 p.m.  Hundreds of folks from our community will be a part of this "Living Thank You Card" honoring our heroes.  Special guests for 2016 include;  KDVA Deputy Commissioner Heather French Henry, Travis and Tara Estes, Skylar Cain, Aaron Kizer, Kentucky Youth Chorale, and much more!

Tickets are going fast if you would like to attend contact Cathy Mullins at 270-316-9203.
