Super Sundays return to Kendall Perkins Park
Super Sundays are back at Kendall Perkins Park. After a one-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Northwest Neighborhood Alliance officials have scheduled five city-wide family events, including a Baptist Town vs. Mechanicsville basketball game on August 8.
According to Northwestern President Rafe Buckner, Super Sundays at Kendall Perkins Park saw incredible community participation in its first run of 2019.
“The idea is to get people out of the house, leave their phones and interact with the neighbors,” Buckner said.
Super Sundays are for everyone in Owensboro, Buckner said. Although held in the northwest area of the city, access is not limited to those who live in the neighborhood.
Super Sundays will run from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on June 13 and 22, July 11 and 28, and August 8. With new basketball goals, a spray park, updated restrooms and plenty of room to enjoy the outdoors, the community can enjoy many amenities at Kendall Perkins Park.
According to Buckner, most Super Sundays will feature entrees like freshly grilled burgers and hot dogs, along with a DJ playing “family” music. Games such as UNO, spades and dominoes can be played at the picnic tables, while bouncy houses will be available for children on a number of weekends.
