Local News

OWENSBORO, Ky. – One of the biggest summer event series starts in downtown Owensboro Friday.

Friday After 5 will run each Friday for the next few months.

This week’s theme is Non-Profit Night.

The City of Owensboro has made changes to some downtown policies that will be in place for the first time.

This year will debut what the city is calling “The District,” the area of downtown with relaxed alcohol restrictions as to where you can carry a drink.

The section of the district runs from Veterans Boulevard to Fifth Street.

If you buy a drink in a specific area, you can now walk around certain areas of the district with some restrictions.
