This time last year, Owensboro Parks and Recreation unleashed a bunch of squeaking pigs into parks around the city. The event was called Hambushed and local families accepted the challenge of visiting our local parks and hunting for snorting pigs that were hidden at them. It was uproariously fun!

Well, this year, the pigs have been retired and they've been replaced with hockey pucks.  Hockey continues to have a rich tradition here in Owensboro. Owensboro Hockey was established back in 1971 and that tradition of having incredible youth hockey programs and teams continues fifty years later. So, Owensboro Parks and Recreation is celebrating that heritage with the 2022 Pucks in the Park Scavenger Hunt!
