Those wishing to become a vendor or to sign-up for the volleyball tournament can pick-up a registration form from the Bowling Green City Hall, which is located at 16 West Church Street, Bowling Green, Mo.

New Park To Be Added
During a recent meeting of the Bowling Green Board of Aldermen, the city’s leaders agreed to have the city’s attorney draft the necessary paperwork to create a third city park in Bowling Green.
The new city park, which will be located near the Community Center on West Locust Street, will feature playground equipment that is similar to the equipment found in the city’s two other parks, the 15th Street Park and the City Park on Court Street.
City officials hope to one day be able to add park benches and picnic tables to the Community Center Park.
