Downtown Date Night 2013 ready to kick off | News
OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE)- Downtown Date Night is ready to kick off its 2013 season in Owensboro and some things are new this year.
The free event's back at Riverfront Crossing, since Smothers Park wasn't fully open yet last year.
The addition of Artists' Alley is also in the works, which will be like an open air market.
Organizer Steve Champion says the event's a good way to experience all of the development and activity that's happening downtown firsthand.
"Downtown Date Night's just a perfect opportunity to really enjoy the things that you're hearing so much about on the riverfront in Owensboro," said Champion. "The new park, the fountains. We've got a new restaurant being built right behind us, and marry that together with some good live music, and it's a fun night," he said.
Downtown Date Night and the Owensboro Music Center will bring the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus to town on May 23rd.
