UK is pulling its Big Blue Caravan out of storage for another tour around the Bluegrass this summer.
The 2019 tour was announced Wednesday afternoon with stops in Eastern Kentucky, Owensboro and Meade County coming up later this month.
The caravan’s trusty leader, Mitch Barnhart, said, “We are excited to be touring the Commonwealth once again on the Big Blue Caravan. The return of the event last year was a special experience for all who participated and the relationships we built and strengthened still last today. We look forward to doing the same this summer in a new set of communities throughout the state that means so much to us.”
Here’s the schedule:
— Hazard, Ky. | Monday, June 24 | Noon -2 p.m. | City Hall (700 Main St.)
— Paintsville, Ky. | Wednesday, June 26 | 10-11:30 a.m. | Paintsville Recreation Center (232 Preston St.)
— Owensboro, Ky. | Thursday, June 27, 4-6 p.m. | Kroger (2630 Frederica St.)
— Meade County, Ky. | Friday, June 28, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. | Kroger (568 By Pass Rd.)
All four events are open to the public and will include poster giveaways and photo opportunities with UK’s mascots and trophies. Kash Daniel will be in attendance for the stop in Paintsville.
