4th of July Weekend is shaping up to be an incredibly patriotic one here in Owensboro. The City of Owensboro is gearing up for the annual All-American 4th of July Fireworks Celebration on Monday. Friday night, Friday After 5 is going to get everyone ready for an entire weekend of Independence Day celebrations.
