Sawyer Brown to Headline Summer Salute Festival
The local tradition of superstar country music headliners continues at the 3rd Annual Summer Salute festival with the announcement of SAWYER BROWN as the Saturday night feature entertainment for Hopkinsville’s downtown two-day festival on August 24-25. Last year’s three-day festival attracted over 35,000 attendees in conjunction with the community’s Solar Eclipse celebration.
Sawyer Brown’s free headliner show is made possible by sponsorship from Pennyrile Electric and Fortera Credit Union. The concert will be at 7 pm in front of the Justice Center in downtown Hopkinsville and fans are encouraged to bring their own seating.
The six-time country music Vocal Band of the Year has released 20 studio albums, three Number One hits and 50 singles that cracked the U.S. Billboard Hot Country charts. The group rose to fame in as winners of the TV Show Star Search in 1983 and then lived up to their hype with a long string of hits and national awards from CMA, ACM and CMT. Their number one chart toppers include Step That Step, Some Girls Do, and Thank God For You.
“Like previous Summer Salute headliners, Sawyer Brown will bring a long list of hits and great energy to their Saturday night show in Hopkinsville. Everyone who has heard them before raves about their concerts and many folks remember still fondly recall the band’s last local concert at the Western Kentucky State Fair years ago,” said Tab Brockman, Parks and Recreation Superintendent. “And we want to thank Pennyrile Electric and Fortera Credit Union for sponsoring the show to make it free for our community.”
“Pennyrile Electric is happy to sponsor Sawyer Brown this year. I’ve had the opportunity to heare them several times over the years and know they will not disappoint. They have a ton of hits,” added Brent Gilkey, Pennyrile Electric Vice-President of Member Services.
“Fortera Credit Union is proud to be a sponsor of the Sawyer Brown concert during the 2018 Summer Salute. One of Fortera’s core values is to serve our community and this is a great way for us to give back,” said Susan Dickinson, Fortera Credit Union Community Relations Manager.
Sawyer Brown’s Mark Miller also formed his own Christian record label, Beach Street Records, in the 2000s and has played an instrumental role in the development of Christian music stars Casting Crowns.
Additional information about Summer Salute entertainment will be released over the coming days on the Parks and Recreation website, Facebook and other social media. Musical acts of all varieties will be performing all day on Friday and Saturday of the festival.

NEW KENTUCKY SALES TAX - EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2018
The Kentucky state legislature enacted new tax measures this year which impact Parks and Recreation services. Effective July 1, 2018 a 6% sales tax will be charged on admission/services/fees associated with statewide Parks and Recreation offerings that were not previously taxed.
The new sales tax applies to most all offerings through the Hopkinsville Division of Parks and Recreation, including admission fees to Tie Breaker Family Aquatic Center. The state’s Department of Revenue has determined that the Summer Adventure Day Camp fees are not subject to new tax.
If you would like to avoid this tax, please pay your outstanding invoice amount or submit a tax exemption form by no later than Friday, June 29, 2018. Non-profit entities will be exempted from the sales tax by presenting the appropriate forms for future events.
As of July 1, 2018, the Hopkinsville Division of Parks and Recreation will conform to this new Kentucky law. We appreciate the public’s understanding and cooperation as we work through this new sales tax together.
Tie Breaker Teen Nites Are Back with Age Divisions
The popular Teen Nite series at Tie Breaker Aquatic Center returns in expanded fashion for 2018 in June and July, with nights separated by age divisions of 8th-10th graders and a separate night for Juniors and Seniors. The first Teen Nite of the summer will be held on Thursday, June 28 for 8th-10th Graders. On Friday, June 29 the park is open for Juniors and Seniors only. In July the underclassmen have their night on July 26 and the upperclassmen on July 27.
Teen Nite hours are 7:30-10:30 pm with a $5.00 admission charge for the evening. Teens must show proof of age with a valid driver’s license, Department of Motor Vehicle ID (available for non-drivers for $4.00), or a school ID. A parent or guardian can also sign in the student at the park admission gate.
Music, water and concessions will be the highlights, along with the fact that Tie Breaker transforms into a teen-only facility. Adults will not be allowed in the park, however, appropriate supervision will be provided by the Hopkinsville Police Department and regular water park staff.
“Teen Nites were a big success last summer,” according the Tab Brockman, Parks and Recreation Superintendent. “We asked for student feedback and responded by separating the nights into appropriate school ages and grades. And we really appreciate the YMCA operational staff working with us on this after-hours project to provide more opportunities for our youth to have more things to do.”
* * * * *
Special rules will be in effect again for Teen Nites to address safety while creating an environment teenagers will still enjoy.
The age/ID requirement mandates proof of age between 14-18 years old, or proof of high school enrollment between 9th-12th grades. Parents/guardians can also sign students in if they do not have a valid school ID. No adults will be allowed into the park, but they may remain in the Tie Breaker parking lot. Absolutely no re-admission once a patron has left the park, for any reason. Supervision will be provided by Hopkinsville Police Department. A DJ will be on hand and the concession stand will be open for food and drink purchases during the special event. Tie Breaker season pass will be honored for admission to Teen Nite if it is in the student’s name.
