Primetime Events Receives Funding From City

By  | 

A Bowling Green non-profit agency that faced closing its doors without funding from the city will now remain open.

Saturday, the City Commission voted to cut funding for Primetime Events, a non-profit agency that has organized numerous community events for the last seven years.

But after Primetime board members met with Commissioner Slim Nash to discuss the future of the agency without funding from the city, Commissioners reconsidered their decision.

The city is now agreeing to restore $20,000 in funding for the agency. Without these funds from the city, Primetime events said it would have had to cancel the Balloons and Barbecue Festival planned for September.

The agency also organizes Sand in the City, the annual 10-K, the Chocolate Festival, and Winter Lights, just to name a few.
