Guns & Hoses 16 is taking place at Evansville's Ford Center this Saturday, and we have the official fight card.

I can not be more excited about the return of Guns & Hoses! This is hands-down one of the best events you'll attend all year for a couple of reasons. First and most importantly, it is the biggest fundraiser for 911 Gives Hope which takes every penny raised and distributes the proceeds to other children's charities across the Tri-State through its grant program.

Secondly, it's just an incredible night of entertainment. There are pyrotechnics complete with towering flames and smoke machines as the fighters walk down the ramp toward the ring. Plus, each fighter walks out to a song they picked with seemingly every genre of music covered. There's country, pop, hard rock, heavy metal, hip-hop, and even a show tune or two. Think of it as if the WWE staged a boxing event (minus the part where they know who will win ahead of time). It's more than just a night of boxing, it's a spectacle that you can't miss.

See How Downtown Evansville Has Changed Over the Years

I find looking back on the way things used to be fascinating. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I'm living through the current time period. The conveniences of answering any question we have in seconds, or ordering practically anything we want or need and having it delivered to our doorstep is pretty sweet. But, there is something fun about seeing how things around us have evolved. As an Evansville native, and spending quite a bit of my time in downtown Evansville (that's where the station is located), I've always appreciated the older architecture of the buildings around the area. So, I dug into the Willard Library Archives to see how a few of those areas look now compared to then. Some have changed a little, others quite a bit, and a few don't even exist any more. Take a look.
