Kentucky to do

Halloween safety course

FORT WRIGHT - Make sure little ghouls and ghosts have a safe Halloween trick-or-treating - attend a free safety program from 3-5 p.m. Sunday at the city building.

Among the topics discussed will be candy and costume safety. The program, sponsored by the city's parks and recreation board, will be in the Fire/EMS bays of the city building, located at 409 Kyles Lane.

Pumpkin festival

FLORENCE - The annual pumpkin festival at the Produce Patch will return this Saturday and Sunday.

Children will be able to make their own lollipop ghosts and decorate pumpkin cookies.

Music, hand-dipped caramel apples, a grill-out, music and craft booths will all be available.

Hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

The festival has been revived by new owner Steve Micheli, a former sales executive for Chiquita.

The Produce Patch, located at 7750 Burlington Pike, is an indoor farmer's market known as much for the dancing fruit and vegetable men sign atop the building as for the fruits and vegetables that have been sold there since the early 1960s.

MainStrasse home tour

COVINGTON - Take a tour of 10 different gardens and restored homes from the 19th century in MainStrasse Village Saturday beginning at 11

Tickets for the tour are $10 and may be purchased the day of the tour at the Goose Girl Fountain at the intersection of 6th and Main streets.

The MainStrasse Village Association is helping sponsor the event with local real-estate agency Coldwell Banker & West Shell.

Representatives from the city and Coldwell Banker will provide information on available restoration incentives and properties.

Harvest Celebration
