Blanco Brown Headlines an Exciting HydroFair Preview Night at Friday After 5 in Owensboro
Tonight's going to be an incredible night at Friday After 5 in downtown Owensboro. In fact, it's going to be an exciting weekend here in town as the city plays host to its 2nd Annual HydroFair, with exciting hydroplane racing taking place on the Ohio River. While testing for HydroFair gets underway Friday, the real star of the show Friday night is going to be international recording star Blanco Brown, who'll be headlining the Jagoe Homes Main Stage.
Blanco, of course,is best known for his song "The Git Up", but he recently scored another #1 on the country charts when he teamed up for Parmalee on "Just The Way."
Blanco will take the stage at 8pm, but there's a lot going on before he does. You'll get to see the champion of the United Way's Git Up Challenge (they'll perform on stage) and you'll get to see and meet some of the drivers who are in town for HydroFair.
Of course, there's music on multiple stages downtown. Here's a look at the other bands playing Friday After 5 this week. The list includes these Owensboro legends.
