PADUCAH, KY – Herbane Naturals features organic soaps, deodorants and more located at 533 Madison Street at 6th Street in downtown Paducah, KY.

The soaps have no added fragrances or dyes. The bars are made with locally sourced ingredients and essential oils for the most natural soaps on the market.

I purchase some tea soap and tried it out and it’s wonderful. I just love the smell and the added coconut oil is great for dry winters.

The shop resides in a home that happens to be one of oldest homes in Paducah known as The Smedley Yeiser House built in 1852.

Herbane is locally owned by Erica Harding and Matthew David Curtis and they are two of the nicest people.

Please stop in the next time you’re in the market for soaps, records, clothes or unique gift items. Doing so will help keep downtown vibrant.

Oh and Matthew, I will stop by in the next couple of days to get a photo of you and a better one of the building.  Thanks you so much!

PADUCAH, KY – Christmas in Noble Park, sponsored by Paducah Power, is the yearly event that turns the park into a Christmas wonderland. And with a half million lights attached to hundreds of animated characters and everything-Christmas, it covers most of the 135 acres of land that makes up park.

To see the lights, you just need to drive through the entrance of Noble Park at Park Avenue and that’s it. The road takes you through the entire park and circles you back to the exit at Park Avenue.

It’s free but please help by donating money or nonperishable foods (like can goods) at the Santa House that sits a ways in on your right.

The donations go to St. Vincent DePaul Society, Family Service Society, Paducah Cooperative Ministry and the Salvation Army.  The Annual Christmas in the Park 2016 raised $43,752 and 66,893 pounds of food.

Noble Park is beautiful in the day but on a moonlit night in concert with a half million twinkling lights, it becomes a Magical place and all for a good cause.

♦ Carriage rides by reservation by John’s Pass Carriage Company

WHEN: Nov 24 – Dec 31
Held every year between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day

Sun-Thu: 6pm to 9pm
Fri-Sat: 6pm to 10pm

Please support this local gem by visiting the next time you feel the need to explore the history of this wonderful town.

I wanted to thank the nicest lady ever that did the voiceover and showed me around. You have a great voice!
