Saturday, October 1st is going to be a great day in Devou Park. DevouGrass returns for it’s third year at the band shell in Devou. There will be live bluegrass music, food trucks, FREE activities for kids, bike races, foot races, craft vendors and more! Ms. Amy from the Covington Public Library will be there with cool activities for the kids, Circus Mojo will be entertaining the crowds and kids can play games with the Play Library. It really will be fun for the whole family.
We’re so excited for the DevouGrass festival THIS Saturday! Come to the park for live bluegrass music, check out local artisans and crafters, and enjoy great food, and tons of fun.
Returning to DevouGrass for 2016 is the DevouGrass Kids Run and Ride. This partnership between The Devou Park Trail Collective and the Devou Good Project is a FREE event for kids. Registration begins at 11.a.m. in Rotary Grove, next to the Band Shell in Devou Park, Covington, KY.
Foot races will be for ages 9-12, 6-9 and 3-6 (with guardian participation). A bike race will be available for ages 9-12. Bring your own bike and helmet. All participants will receive a free goodie backpack and be entered in a raffle to win a free kids bicycle from Reser Bicycle Outfitters. We are excited to partner with Bridges, Inc.–the Northern Kentucky Brain Injury Support Group. They will be onsite with free bike helmets and fittings.
After the races, grab lunch from local food trucks, pick a spot on the grass, and enjoy the music.
