With less than a month until kickoff of the second annual VisitNich.com Bowl, final preparations are under way to shore up plans for the start of the football season in the county.
On Thursday, July 19, members of the Nicholasville Tourism Commission — the official sponsor of the bowl — met with school officials to discuss plans for the now-three-day event. This season, the Soccerama Showcase will follow Friday’s football games on Saturday and Sunday.
This season, the VisitNich.com Bowl will be hosted by West Jessamine High School, with East Jessamine playing Somerset at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 17. At approximately 8:45 p.m., West Jessamine will play Tates Creek.
Saturday and Sunday’s Soccerama Showcase will be hosted by East Jessamine at the Jaguars’ soccer facilities.
That event will feature nine teams playing in seven games — including East Jessamine boys vs. West Jessamine boys Saturday night.
