There’s a Fun Back to School Celebration Friday Evening in Owensboro
School is back in session here in Owensboro-Daviess County and the folks at Friday After 5 have planned a huge Back to School celebration downtown. This week is Back to School Night and features a really fun scavenger hunt that the entire family can compete in. The scavenger hunt is sponsored by WKRBC and is fully interactive through the WBKR app.
In addition to Back to School Night, there's going to be great live music on multiple stages and a special appearance by the newly crowned Little Miss & Mister Daviess County, who'll be opening the evening, in true "school" fashion, with the Pledge of Allegiance.
Here's Friday night's impressive lineup of entertainment, which will feature the finale of WBKR's Friday Night Fight talent contest sponsored by the Western Kentucky Regional Blood Center. The fun gets underway at 6pm on the Ruoff Party Stage and features these eight finalists.

The FIGHT gets underway at 6pm and one of our finalists is going to win $1000 and earn the right to headline the Ruoff Party Stage on Friday, September 2nd on season finale night for the 26th anniversary season of Friday After 5.
