PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - About 30,000 people are expected to visit Paducah for the American Quilter’s Society’s annual quilt show and contest.

Media outlets report that the event kicks off 4:30 p.m. Tuesday with an awards presentation where the “Best of Show” award will be given. Executive show director Bonnie Browning says that shortly thereafter, quilters begin perusing downtown Paducah’s shops and restaurants.

Beginning Wednesday, the William and Meredith Schroeder Expo Center and Paducah’s dome pavilion will fill up with more than 600 displays for guests to view through Saturday. This year, some exhibits come from as far away as France and Japan.

The Merchant Mall will offer hundreds of quilting items for sale. Furthermore, classes and workshops will be offered throughout the week.
