The Kentucky Derby Festival: The Kentucky Derby Festival has announce the theme for the 2009 Derby Festival – “Road to Fun!” The theme will celebrate the excitement of taking a “road trip” to explore the wonderful attractions that make our area of the country so beloved. “Road to Fun!” will be reflected in many of the Derby Festival’s events in 2009, with creative road signs and maps incorporated into promotions and event decorations. The theme was unveiled at last night’s Your Community Bank Poster Premiere at the Mellwood Arts & Entertainment Center, which was decorated with interstate signage and a hallway entrance that resembled a blacktop highway.
The International Bar-B-Q Festival: Every second weekend in May, Owensboro springs to life with the wonderful smells and sounds of the International Bar-B-Q Festival.
