Top 3 Things to Do in Owensboro This Weekend: March 25-27

Red Hot Chili Pipers      

A little background story: The Red Hot Chili Pipers are a Celtic rock band from Scotland. Formed in 2002, the group gained international popularity after winning the BBC talent show, “When Will I Be Famous?” The band’s lineup features three highland bagpipers and traditional marching snare, backed by a five- to seven-piece band consisting of guitars, drums and keyboards. Shows also include impressive vocal performances and highland dancing! The band performs a fusion of traditional pipe tunes and contemporary pieces, so there’s a little bit of music for everybody here. Notable covers performed by the Chili Pipers include “We Will Rock You,” “Clocks” “Smoke on the Water” and “Don’t Stop Believing.” The group even appeared on the How to Train Your Dragon 2 soundtrack! This Scottish bagrock band will perform at the RiverPark Center on March 25 from 8-10 p.m. and tickets are only $19, so get them while you can!

Diamond Lake Easter Egg Hunt
