Kroger Street Fair – Fun For Everyone

Each week’s theme is different for the Kroger Street Fair. We host a kids Hula-Hoop Contest and invite the five contestants to center stage to see who can “Twist Again Like We Did Last Summer” the longest while hula hooping! Winner gets a Welborn Floral Kids Gift Basket! Then we choose five couples from the sponsors or Pre-Unions to enter the Water Balloon Toss Contest. The winning couple gets a $30 Kroger Gift Card. Losers get a towel. We all meet at sundown to “Toast the Sunset” as it dips into the Ohio. Then the nightlife continues.

RiverPark Center and the Owensboro Convention Center will allow guests of all ages, however; anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult over the age of 21.
