This year is flying by and it’s flying so fast that the Second Saturday events have crept up on us. This year’s Second Saturday will again be a great way to spend a day Downtown. The first Second Saturday street fair will be held on Saturday, April 9th in beautiful Fountain Square Park and will continue each second Saturday through October from 9:00am to 3:00pm. For your enjoyment there will be horse and carriage rides by Rockin B Horse and Carriage, inflatables for the kids by Party 1 Superstore, face painting, balloon twisting, food vendors, product vendor booths and more, that will all combine for fun and excitement.
The event is now in its second year and grows with each month that passes.
The thing we like about Second Saturday is it brings some people who don’t get downtown very often and they are exposed to the quiet but strong resurgence our downtown has made over the past 5 years. Artisans and entrepreneurs display their handicrafts and products in a comfortable shopping atmosphere that shows the fun of shopping in Downtown Bowling Green. If you haven’t been Downtown lately, come and enjoy Second Saturdays throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall.
Some vendors bring beautiful handmade jewelry at very reasonable
prices. Sno Cones and Hawaiian Shaved Ice really hit the spot on hot
Summer days. And just add soda water, or and carbonated beverage to one
of our vendor’s products, and enjoy wonderful (and easy to make) home-
While you are Downtown for Second Saturdays, also enjoy looking for
Squirrels on the Square – ceramic squirrels that hide out in 12 downtown
businesses each month. The drawing prize for April is a $100 dinner at
Verdi Restaurant. Find out more from any of the nineteen participating
merchants around Fountain Square.
