You don’t need a special occasion to make a visit to Paducah, Kentucky, but, just in case you do, why not visit for a total solar eclipse? The 2017 solar eclipse takes place next month and is a short event that you won’t want to miss!
A total solar eclipse is when the moon completely blocks the sun, resulting in a dark sky where only the sun’s corona is visible. This year, the solar eclipse will take place on August 21st and last around 2 minutes and 19 seconds. During that time, Paducah will experience darkness, but there’s much more to see in Paducah!
In celebration of the solar eclipse, there’s a whole host of eclipse events being planned leading up to August 21st. Eclipse viewing events will be held at the Challenger Learning Center and McCracken County Library. Some of the best viewing areas will include the Paducah Riverfront and Fountain Avenue Health Park.
It would be wise to try to arrive a day prior to the eclipse to avoid any scheduling snags due to bad traffic. The 2017 solar eclipse only happens once, so be sure to head to Paducah to see it for yourself!
We here at Linwood Hyundai of Paducah hope to see you in August for the solar eclipse!
The city of Paducah provides plenty of family-friendly fun and games with their annual LIVE on the RIVER Sounds of Summer Series. One night has already passed us by—its first date was June 3rd—but the second will fall right on July 4th. Come celebrate Independence Day with the city of Paducah, lasting from 4pm until 10 that night with everything from activities and games for children to good ol’-fashioned fireworks.
Festivities begin as early as 1pm, with food truck vendors showing up to the event’s location and Broadway Street, Market Square, and 2nd Street all closed for the celebration. However, the real fun doesn’t begin until 4pm, with live music and entertainment playing all over the downtown streets alongside family- and kid-friendly activities that’s sure to be fun for everyone. The National Anthem will begin at 9:15pm, heralding the oncoming fireworks show, which lasts until 10 and the end of the event.
Celebrate Independence Day with the community on the riverfront; it’s sure to be a blast. After the July 4th celebration, there’s only one more date for the 2017 LIVE on the RIVER Sounds of Summer Series on August 5th, which will feature a Big Brown Truck Pull along with music and family fun. Roll up to any of these summer events in a new vehicle from Linwood Hyundai!
With Memorial Day fast approaching, brands across the country are rushing to show their appreciation for our military men and women. Hyundai is no exception. The Hyundai military incentive will be doubled between May 19 and May 31, 2017, for service men and women in the market for a new crossover.
The vehicles included in this promotion are the Hyundai Tucson, Santa Fe, and Santa Fe Sport. Active or retired U.S. military members can enjoy $1,000 toward the purchase of any of these models during the week preceding Memorial Day until the Wednesday after. All other Hyundai models will still be covered by the automaker’s regular military incentive of $500.
Derrick Hatami, Hyundai Motor America’s vice president of national sales, commented, “Hyundai has long been dedicated to helping servicemen and women get into a new vehicle and 13 percent of Hyundai purchases come from military personnel thanks to our consistently strong program.
“During Memorial Day weekend this year, we are doubling the discount on our CUVs and SUVs for military personnel and that’s in addition to our Better Than Ever Sales event,” he continued.
If you are an active or retired member of the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy, Army National Guard, or any military Reserves, head down to Linwood Paducah Hyundai to take advantage of this limited offer. And even if you’re not in the market for a new car, we thank you from the bottoms of our hearts for your service and sacrifices.
