It’s not just about vehicles, it’s about food trucks, vendors, and quality family entertainment. I like to refer to it as the place where Chrome, Custom Paint & Grub Collide with Music & Fun, all while raising funds for the kids at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital! AND IT’S ALL FREE TO SPECTATORS! Yes, NO FEE TO THE PUBLIC!
On Friday, August 18th, Bluegrass Legends will partner with the premier riverfront summer festival in Kentucky, famously known as Friday After 5 in downtown Owensboro. We will have custom car parking, custom vehicles displayed along the waterfront & music themed to move the body & soul of motorsport enthusiast.
On Friday you can participate in a fun cruising route in town, or choose to go to a street vehicle Tech & Tune opportunity at Windy Hollow Dragway where you can run your car on the dragstrip! (For those that choose to be Gear-Heads).
