Driving around town you may see Emma Thomas, our one woman whirlwind pounding stakes and placing Festival banners throughout the city. Each year, she has helped put out banners as part of a team.  But, due to scheduling conflicts, this year she has taken on the job by herself. Emma has been part of the Bowling Green International Festival planner’s committee since she was practically a child.

Today, she is one of the Festival’s most valuable assets, aiding with publicity and creating signage and volunteer instructions in advance of the event. On festival day, you can see her helping with site setup and supervising Gate 2 throughout the day.

The Bowling Green International Festival is organized by a small group of people working year round. Over 200 volunteers are needed on Saturday, September 24 to run the event. If you are interested in helping visit http://bginternationalfest.com/volunteer and signup for the shift of your choice.
