It’s warm but you don’t want to miss out on one of the best ways Bowling Green kicks off your Saturdays each month. Tomorrow, Second Saturday will again be a great way to spend a day Downtown. The third installment of Second Saturday street fair will be held on Saturday, June 11th 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-
This Second Saturdays street fair event Downtown on Fountain Square will have Live Music. The band in June is the Barren River Trio at noon, along with all the other attractions that make this a fun family event. Don’t miss it! Play Squirrels on the Square while you are Downtown and you just might win a $100 gift certificate at Himalayan Handcrafted Rugs.
