Terra: Annual Lower Town Arts Festival a Success

May 20, 2013

Organizers say the weekend’s Paducah Lower Town Arts and Music Festival was another success.

A double-digit percentage increase in visitors, several new events and some tweaks to the regular line-up of events led to what co-director Michael Terra called a tremendous weekend of festival food and fun.

Some 14,000-16,000 visitors swarmed Paducah’s lower-town district for new events like the “Top Potter” event, which featured nearly a dozen local artists in a timed competition.

Paducah Symphony Orchestra Executive Director tells Kate Lochte on Sounds Good that this is the first-ever Symphony performance at the Lower Town Arts & Music Festival which occurs Saturday at 5:30 p.m. at the Main Stage. Admission is free to the Festival and there's no parking fee. Click here to see more about the LowerTown Arts & Music Festival
