2 Smashin' Summer Saturdays coming up

Staff report

Paducah Main Street's Smashin' Summer Saturdays promotion continues for the next two weekends, ending Aug. 2.

Today there will be morning and early evening musical entertainment at the gazebo located at Second and Broadway.

From 10 a.m. until noon, enjoy the talents of Alex Coltharp, banjo player and songwriter for both Gideon's Rifle and Red Ember.

From 5:30 until 7:30 p.m., tap your toes with the jazzy sounds of Captain Freddy and the River Cats. They bring a vast background of symphony, big band, dixieland, Blues, progressive jazz, hospel and good old rock 'n' roll to their performances.
