The good news? All Friday(change that to Fry Day) After 5 events this week are moving inside. The air conditioned RiverPark Center is the hub for all activities according to a new release from the FA5 committee.

Fry-Day After 5 Keeps its Cool 


All Friday After 5 events will be in the comfort of air-conditioned RiverPark Center this week due to the National Weather Services predicted record high temperatures. 

“The safety and comfort of our guests and our entertainers are always our first concern,” said Brandon Gentry, Friday After 5 Chairman. “We have one of the hottest bands of the season so bringing the Jimmy Church Band into the air-conditioned Jody Berry Theatre will be even more important.  We’ll create a great Friday After 5 atmosphere in a comfortable setting.” 


Jimmy Church in the Jody Berry Theatre, Motown comes downtown as US Bank Home Mortgage presents the renown Jimmy Church Band playing all of the biggest Motown hits along with the newest dance songs.  Show begins at 6:30pm and continues until 10pm in the Jody Berry Theatre.

Jeff Hardesty in Woodward’s:  UniFirst presents Jeff “Wildman” Hardesty, a songwriter and performing artist from the Owensboro, Kentucky area. He is well known throughout the region, due in part to his extensive touring schedule and high-energy performances.

Kroger Street Fair: We’ll have the “Cat in the Hat” as our special guest from Cartoon Land plus free balloon animals and popcorn for the kids.  We’ll have the Welborn’s Hula-Hoop contest at 7:45 followed by the Kroger Water Balloon toss.  This week’s PreUnions include Owensboro High School Classes of 1982 and 1967. 

All events are free, fun and family friendly and, this week, will be inside the air conditioned RiverPark Center.  For more details, visit
