Lot’s To Do This Fall Weekend in Owensboro
There seems to be more to do this weekend than there is road construction and that is saying alot. You can fill almost every waking hour with acivities for everyone. I thought I would offer up a few choices here.
High School Football. If you are an OCHS Aces fan you can attend the game at Hancock Co., listen to the game on 1490 WOMI (or online at www.1490womi.com) or on your smartphone with radiopup.com.,
You can also attend Voices of Elmwood, a historical re-enactment that features actors playing the part of those buried in the cemetery. An hour long hayride brings you face to face as they tell their story. Tickets are $10. Call the Museum at 270-687-2732 for info.
