Tonight: Midnight Special To Rock Friday After 5

Friday after_5OWENSBORO, KY (5/25/12) - This evening, Friday After 5 fires-up week 2 of celebrations at RiverPark Center with free concerts and events. The Riverfront festivities, which began 17 years ago, have grown into a 16 week celebration, attracting 50,000 visitors annually. It was named one of the “Top Ten Summer Festivals” in Kentucky as well as winning the Reader’s Choice Gold Award.

The revelry kicks off at 5:00 PM, of course, and includes live entertainment from Midnight Special, starting at 6:30. Playing hits from the ‘70s and ‘80s, their “Classic Rock Experience” will give visitors “a show you’ll never forget set to the music you will always remember.” The concert is sponsored by Owensboro-DC Regional Airport and Cape Air, Owensboro’s newest commercial airline. You can also register for free airline tickets, courtesy of the sponsors.

This evening’s UniFirst Courtyard event will feature Boro Band. “Featuring three vocalists, a solid rhythm section, sassy brass, and complex guitar leads, The Boro Band is a cover band with instant appeal that draws and holds audiences in place.” Boro Band will play classic tunes starting at 7:00 PM until 10:00 from artists such as The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, Phish, Cake, and Ween.

Not to be outdone, Glenn Family Services will sponsor Gospel on the River, featuring The Blackwood Gospel Group, Paul Mosley, and The Crossmen. The concert, hosted by Donnie Dortch, begins at 7:00 PM in Cannon Hall, which seats up to 1,500 people. Doors open at 6:00.

Finally, as always, the Kroger Street Fair will offer food and family events until 10:00 PM as well as the traditional Friday night “Toast to the Sunset”.
