Enjoy Helicopter Rides During BBQ & Barrels in Downtown Owensboro, Kentucky
You'll soon have a chance to experience an exhilarating flight with breathtaking views of the Owensboro Riverfront. Here's the BBQ & Barrels line-up and how to take the ride of a lifetime this weekend.
I was blessed to see Owensboro from a Huey helicopter on various occasions and it was a fantastic experience. You fly at altitudes where you can see more landmark details. It's way cooler to fly in a helicopter than in an airplane. Now, you can experience the most incredible views from high in the sky during BBQ & Barrels.

"BBQ & Barrels represents the culmination of 45 years of a cultural tradition in Owensboro and Daviess County. It celebrates our past, present, and future, bringing together two of Owensboro’s greatest traditions – authentic, unparalleled Owensboro barbecue and historic Kentucky bourbon."
The carnival returns with amusement park rides, game booths, delicious carnival food, and a whole lot of entertainment. It will be on 2nd Street, just east of the blue bridge.
