The president of Owensboro Health announced today at the Bluegrass Museum that the hospital system will be sponsoring three events coming to Owensboro this summer with more than $50,000 in financial support.

Those three events being the Owensboro Air Show, the Downtown Romp Air Show After Party, and Romp Fest.

“This last year has been really hard," said Mark Marsh, president and CEO of Owensboro Health. "Not only with people in health care, but the whole entire community, so I think the arts and the events are a way to outreach, bring people back, and unite communities, so I really believe these three events will do that.”

The first of the three events will begin Aug. 13 with the Owensboro Air Show, lasting from the 13th till the 15th, and the After Party will take place the night of the 14th at the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

And the final event will be ROMP Fest beginning on Sep. 15 at Yellow Creek Park.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
