WOW! This Saturday is the 5th installment of the Twenty-Eleven Second Saturday series. Second Saturday will again be a great way to spend a day Downtown. August 13th, in beautiful Fountain Square Park and will continue each second Saturday through October from 9:00am to 3:00pm. This one will be a little different after we’ve lost a few trees and one statue is missing for repair but, that doesn’t mean it won’t be a great time.
Three bands will play throughout the day, with the usual great mix of craft vendors, food and fun. Starts at 9 and goes till 5:30. Come and plan to spend the day. You can even learn to play chess if you’ve never tried.
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-
