Yup, it’s moving fast this year and we are coming up on another Second Saturday. Second Saturday will again be a great way to spend a day Downtown. The fourth installment of Second Saturday street fair will be held on Saturday, July 9th in beautiful Fountain Square Park and will continue each second Saturday through October from 9:00am to 3:00pm.
Second Saturday on July 9th is shaping up to be a GREAT day. Two bands will be there to play one at noontime and another in the evening. If you like 50s and 60s rock, with country mixed in for variety, you’ll be sure to enjoy E.J. Rider. Plan now to “come on down” to Fountain Square and enjoy the festivities, food and fun! Share this with your friends and help get the word around town.
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-
They have a challenge to get to the 500 Friends level on Facebook of people who like Second Saturdays. Let your friends know that if they include the word “Fountain” in their comment to “like” Second Saturdays, their name will go into the hopper for a drawing on July 4th for $100 cash!
