Bicentennial Poster   NEW DATE

Enjoy an action-packed Bicentennial kickoff event on Tuesday, Sept. 25, 5:30-8:00 p.m., at the Covington Trailhead, 419 N. New Hampshire Street. Join the St. Paul’s School “Marching Wolves” as they “play” tribute to the City of Covington’s upcoming 200th birthday. Then, around 6:00 p.m., Kermit Ruffins and the Barbecue Swingers take the stage in true “Rockin’ the Rails” fashion. BBQ and beverages will be available for purchase at the event. Proceeds will benefit Covington Bicentennial Committee projects. Admission is FREE.  Bring your lawn chairs!

“The City of Covington and the Covington Bicentennial Committee are kicking off the Bicentennial Season in grand style! There are plenty of surprises in store for the whole family at this event, including a book sale and signing by Covington authors,” says Pam Keller, Executive Assistant to the Mayor and Special Projects Director. 

Attendees are also encouraged to bring their old photos of “Historic Covington” to the kickoff. The photos will be submitted into the Covington Bicentennial Postcard Contest, and the winning photos will be used to create a series of Bicentennial commemorative postcards, which will be sold at various local outlets. All photos will be returned to their owners after the winning photos are selected.
