Kentucky's Festival City is heading into one of its busiest times of the year.
Festival and Event planners in Owensboro gathered on Thursday to discuss their plans for the upcoming months.
Festival season kicks off in about two weeks with the international BBQ Festival. Officials say that events continue to grow and will expand this year.
"This is the first year we've been able to use the park for a while, and so they'll craft vendors and arts and crafts there on Veterans Boulevard and people will be able to utilize the park," says Karen Porter.
Porter also says one of the reasons tourism continues to thrive in Owensboro is because of the passion and dedication from various festival organizers who are able to cross-promote events.
