Explore the historic downtown district by playing Hopkinsville Bingo: Summer in the City, a month-long program that rewards participants for engaging with the downtown community.

The program, which kicks off Monday and ends July 31, is made possible through a partnership between The Downtown Renaissance District, Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library, the Museums of Historic Hopkinsville-Christian County and The Pennyroyal Arts Council.

"Partnering with these three organizations gives each of us an opportunity to reach a different audience, gets the community moving and provides a chance to take a closer look at our downtown and what it has to offer," said DeeAnna Sova, HCCPL executive director.

The bingo cards can be picked up from HCCPL, 1101 Bethel St.; Woody Winfree Fire-Transportation Museum, 310 E. Ninth St.; and the Alhambra Theatre, 507 N. Main St.

Squares on the bingo cards include a variety of activities such as shopping on 6th Street, eating at a local restaurant, taking selfies and attending downtown events.

"This summer bingo card is a fun way to experience downtown," said Alissa Keller, museums executive director. "We hope it encourages folks to learn more about our community's history and all that it has to offer today."

To play the game, participants must complete activities on the squares and record the date of completion on each square. To enter the bingo drawing, players must complete a line across from top to bottom, left to right, or diagonally. To enter the grand prize drawing, participants must complete the entire bingo card.

All cards must be turned into the library no later than 6:30 p.m. Aug. 2. Prize winners will be chosen at noon Aug. 3 at the Farmer's Market.

"Summertime downtown is full of adventures," said Margaret Prim, Pennyroyal Arts Council director. "We are always excited to partner with the library and museum to create fun things to do in Hopkinsville."

Cards can be completed by individuals or families. All participants are encouraged to use the hashtag #hoptownbingo2019.

"We are excited to collaborate with such great community partners for providing this self-guided discovery of Downtown Hopkinsville," said Holly Boggess, Downtown Renaissance director.
