It’s music. It’s theater. It’s art. It’s the annual Eye Full of Paris Weekend in
historic Downtown Paris. Celebrating visual and performing arts, the event takes
place the last full weekend each September and is sponsored by the Downtown
Paris Association (DPA).
You don’t want to miss the grand southern hospitality and thousands of dollars in cash prizes awarded this coming weekend at Paris Landing State Park at the Mid-South Motorcycle Festival and Boss Hoss National Rally and Burnout BBQ Cook Off. September 20 through 22, 2012. All bikers are welcome but you don’t have to own a bike to participate or join in the fun.
Motorcycle enthusiast from around the world travel will be traveling to the shores of magnificent Kentucky Lake at Paris Landing State Park. With more than 22 years of history behind the awe-inspiring Boss Hoss motorcycles, taking a test ride and feasting your eyes on the largest gathering of chrome and two- and three- wheeled horsepower is breathtaking.
This will be three action-packed days of entertainment for everyone. Thousands of dollars in prize money will be up for grabs in the daily motorcycle events. Patrons will enjoy vending, parades, bike show, musical entertainment and nightly social functions.
