Owensboro celebrates its All-American City Award

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

The City of Owensboro celebrated its All-America City Award on Friday night.

Last month, the City of Owensboro received the recognition from the National Civic League. There was a parade down Veterans Boulevard and one of the fountains at Smothers Park shot a stream of water 60 feet into the air.  

There was also free ice cream for everyone. 

"I think it's a great honor that the city has won the award and I'm not surprised because of the leadership that we have here," said Nancy Brown of Owensboro.

It has been more than 60 years since the city last won the All-America City Award.
