It’s that time of year again!

The board also announced next year's dates for Barbecue on the River, Sept. 23, 24, and 25, 2021, when they plan to be back at the downtown riverfront.
Barbecue on the River has been a Paducah tradition for 25 years. For one family, it has been their annual tradition too — from the very beginning.
Thursday is National Situational Awareness Day, which encourages people to be aware of their surroundings whether crossing the street or going out and about in their day.
