Riverfront Crossing set to open in Owensboro

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - Saturday afternoon, Riverfront Crossing will open in Owensboro.

Riverfront Crossing is the first major project to open in downtown Owensboro.

The space runs from Second Street all the way down to the river.

Riverfront Crossing will open at 3:00 p.m. with Arts in the Park.

Organizers tell 14 News there will be music, food and drinks.

"For the kickoff event, the grand opening with Arts in the Park is really a family oriented event. We have things for kind of all ages specifically we want to draw the families out because of the fact we have some different interactive things for the kids," said Events Director Tim Ross.

Ross says the city will use Riverfront Crossing for small scale events especially around the holidays.
