Get your engineer caps ready, Second Saturday is bringing the train to downtown Fountain Square. Provided by Party 1 Superstore, Second Saturdays train is sure to be a hit to the kids of all ages. This Saturday is the 6th installment of the Twenty-Eleven Second Saturday series. Second Saturday will again be a great way to spend a day Downtown. September 10th, in beautiful Fountain Square Park and will next month, October from 9:00am to 3:00pm.
Second Saturdays will feature Knott Brothers Band and Fat Box for music. Art in the Park will also join them to make this a great time on the Square. If you know of someone who would like to face paint, they will be having a face painting contest. There are 20 paint kits available, so first come, first served. Reserve your kit today! Capitol Arts is also planning some costume photo fun for our youthful participant. Come and join the fun!
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 before it ends next month.
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-
