This week, Historic Downtown Hopkinsville announced many spring activities happening in the Downtown Renaissance District through the rest of April and into the beginning of May, in a recent publication.

In the publication, Historic Downtown shared that it had been a year since its last publication and commended the community’s initiative to support local businesses.

“It’s been a long year since our last publication, and a LONG year, we might add,” the publication said.

“We are so happy to see additional activity in the Downtown Renaissance District — and our entire community — for that matter.

“We salute you for your continued support of our small businesses, and we salute them for their resilience, determination, creativity and positive attitudes.”

Following that statement, Downtown Hopkinsville is excited to make the public aware of several Spring activities happening in the downtown area throughout the remainder of April and the beginning of May.
