OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - Friday After 5 is getting people in the Christmas spirit this week.

Owensboro whipped out those Christmas decorations for a holly jolly July celebration at the weekend riverfront party.

Guests saw were able to get the chance to see some Christmas lights, favorite holiday treats, as well as take a picture with Santa.

A skating rink was also set up downtown inside the convention center.

Due to expected rain, all of Friday’s activities were moved inside.

“It’s better to be safe than sorry, so we moved it inside,” Rich Jorn, executive director of the Riverpark Centre said. “There’s still plenty of stuff to do. It’s just under the comfort of a roof. Owensboro does Christmas in a grand way, so now July’s here, COVID’s not as annoying as it was, so come on down and let’s redo Christmas all over again.”
