Last year’s highly successful Pretty Super Meet & Greet is back and bigger than ever! This year it will be held from 10am until 4pm on Saturday, July 29.
At the event, dozens of superheroes, princesses, and costumed characters will be stationed around downtown Paducah. Some characters will be strolling and singing in the downtown area. There will also be free Cinderella carriage rides.
Families are encouraged to stop at the gazebo located at 2nd Street and Broadway to pick up a free autograph book with a pen while supplies last.
There will be face painting, balloon animals, craft stand and superhero tattoos. Food stands will also be set up so you won’t get hungry: Doe's Eat place will have burgers and dogs and Tribeca will be set up in the Art Park on 2nd Street to provide street tacos and quesadillas.
There will also be funnel cakes provided by Kiwanis, Sno Cones by JD Pass Carriage, and strawberry shortcake by local Boy Scout Troop #200. Ninja Turtle Cookies are available at Kirchoffs Bakery and Super Hero and Princess popcorn by Ann's Gourmet Popcorn.
Stop by the Grand Lodge at 121 N. Fifth Street and dance in the ballroom with Prince Charming and Cinderella! Be greeted by Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Hatter and sign up for Mad Hatter Tea and Wonderland Cupcakes at 2pm. Includes tea or lemonade, cupcake, and an Alice in Wonderland coloring page.
