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.

The group includes Tony Brown on trombone, Jimmy Sells on bass, and Fred Laude on banjo and vocals. They have played at several local festivals and night spots in addition to engagements on the Mississippi Queen Riverboat.

During Smashin' Summer Saturdays, folks can also take a free Market to Market Carriage Ride from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. The carriage will take riders to and from Market Square and the Farmers' Market.

Some cultural venues including Market House Theatre, the Carson Center, Yeiser Art Center, and Maiden Alley Cinema will have special Saturday attractions as well. The Farmers' Market is open 7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, through mid-November.
