What started as a culminating event for Owensboro Christian Church’s vacation bible school has evolved into a summer celebration for the entire community.
The public is invited to Sunday’s Food Trucks and Fireworks event, which will start at 7 p.m.
Elementary minister and event organizer Kegan DeWitt said families can expect inflatables and emergency vehicles available to view. Owensboro Health will also be on site, properly fitting and giving away 200 bike helmets.
The main event, DeWitt said, will be the fireworks, which he said are as good, if not better, than any other display in town.
“The firework show, as great as it was last year, we still wanted to up the experience even more for year two,” he said.
Nearly 2,000 people attended last year’s event and DeWitt anticipates that number growing this year due to the feedback from the inaugural event.
“OCC offers events like this to show the community we value kids and families and this is a great opportunity for us to show how the church wants to love and give back to Owensboro outside of our normal weekend services,” DeWitt said.
DeWitt said the only cost for families will be if they choose to partake in the nine or more food trucks signed on to serve at the event. Those trucks are:
- Tri R Tips Hawaiian BBQ
- Jay’s Good Grub
- La Bendicion
- Real Hacienda Express
- Curbside Kitchenette
- The Pizza Revolution (Evansville)
- Frozen Tundra
- Kona Ice
- Maggie’s Cupcakes
DeWitt said families should bring a blanket or their own chairs to sit on to enjoy the fireworks. Owensboro Christian is located at 2818 New Hartford Rd.
