BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Details were released Thursday morning about the 24th Annual U.S. Bank Balloons, Tunes and BBQ Festival.

The festival, hosted by United Way of Southern Kentucky, is September 4th through 7th at the airport.

Country artists David Nail, Jana Kramer and The Farm will take the stage that Saturday night.

The Bowling Green Idol talent competition also returns this year.

Other fun includes hot air balloons, barbecue, a carnival, inflatables and more.

However, it's about more than the festivities.

"Great family fun -- come out and join us. Don't forget 100% of the net proceeds benefit those in need in our community in supporting United Way," said Craig Browning, the regional president of U.S. Bank.

"It's great to have fun, but when you get to have fun with something significant in a cause like this, it's double fun," said Damien Horn, of The Farm.

Members of The Farm stopped by the Salvation Army this morning to see just one of the organizations the event-raised money will help.

Single day passes will range from five to 20 dollars per person. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
