Barkley Regional Airport invites you to put your space smarts to the test on Oct. 20 by participating in the area's first-ever space-theme trivia game and costume party at Soiree's Event Center.

Starting at 7:30 p.m., this 10-round trivia game will feature questions about space movies, TV shows, books, stories, and general space topics.

Trent Okerson, WPSD Local 6 meteorologist, will lead the trivia game in costume. Prizes will be awarded to the winners of the trivia game and costume contest categories. Several random door prize drawings will also be held throughout the evening.

"Both general trivia buffs and fans of space TV and movies will really have a great time at this fun pre-Halloween costume party and game night," said Eddie Grant, director of marketing for Barkley Regional Airport.

Grant added, "The airport is sponsoring this event to help raise funds and awareness for St. Nicholas Healthcare Payment Assistance Program, a local charity which helps uninsured working adults in our area."

Admission is $20 per person and includes sales tax, entry to the event, catered desserts, coffee, soft drinks, and automatic entry into the door prize drawings. A cash bar will be available. Soiree's Event Center is located at 2069 Irvin Cobb Drive.

Mention this news item to Creatures of Habit at 406 Broadway in Paducah for a 10 percent discount off costume rental for the event. For tickets and information, visit or call 270-538-9010.
