Owensboro hosting geocaching event in 2021

OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - Owensboro is set to host one of the biggest events of its kind in 2021.

Officials tell us on Memorial Day next year, a midwest geocaching event will take place in Yellow Creek Park.

Geocaching involves using a GPS device if find items hidden within a certain location, such as a park.

We’re told next year’s event will feature plenty to find and space for everybody to safely distance themselves.

Officials also tell us they believe the event will bring in more than $250,000 to the local economy.

For those looking to get into geocaching before the next year’s event, there is a self-guided trail along Smothers Park.
