The yearly celebration of Bowling Green's favorite son happens Saturday, September 13.

The Champ Clark Heritage Festival features vendors, a parade, games, a car and truck show and beer and wine tastings.

The historical part of the day includes a play entitled, "Pike County Path Makers," written by local author Brent Engle. The production features the stories of the festival's namesake, former Speaker of the House and presidential candidate Champ Clark, along with U.S. Senator John Brooks Henderson of Louisiana, NBA coach and executive Cotton Fitzsimmons, who grew up in Bowling Green, and others.

Festival coordinator Tara Massman and play author Brent Engle were guests on KHMO's Talk Back:
