Top 3 Things to Do in Owensboro This Weekend: July 16-18

Friday After 5 Christmas

Enjoy a winter wonderland in the middle of summer at Friday After 5 this week. The whole night is about holiday cheer, and Christmas-themed decorations will be strung throughout the riverfront– even the annual Christmas tree will be on display! Enjoy music from Haleigh Martin, Dueling Guitars, Radiotronic, Fire and Ice, Fat Box, and Glastone. You’ll hear blues, country, 80’s dance music, rock, and more. Every artist will perform at least one Christmas song, but the night will be a great blend of music. And the highlight of the night– the debut of the brand new, synthetic outdoor ice rink! Ice skate along the Ohio River at the Kentucky Legend Pier for $10, or $8 if you have your own skates. It’s going to be a magical night!
