Fantasy Fest, A Celebration of the doors of MainStrasse Village

Fantasy Festival Saturday, October 3, 2009 12 Noon – (Closing time) West Sixth and Main Street area The 2009 event calendar for Mainstrasse Village has a new, whimsical addition. The First Annual Fantasy Festival is an all-ages event with low- and no-cost activities and entertainment to charm children as well as the young-at-heart. The festival celebrates a community art project that has captivated the imagination of Covington artists and residents this summer. “The Doors of Mainstrasse Village” have appeared almost magically around town – tiny, delightful doors that are home to elves, fairies, and the other sprites of imagination. The project became so popular that it has earned the corporate sponsorship of local business AE Window and Door Company. The Festival hopes to attract families to visit the Village, hunt for the decorated doors, explore local merchants, enjoy free entertainment, and browse the art and craft booths. Entertainment will include: Pickled Brothers Juggling, Sword Swallower Comedian Team Brian Gill and His Cool Critters Dream Weavers Celtic Story Teller Tallulah and her Dance Troupe Mayan Ruins Musical Band Pharaoh’s Drumming Circle of Cincinnati Greg Harper on his Famous Penny Whistle Evening events are planned featuring the Fantasy Parade at 5:30 p.m. with unicycles, clowns, and stilt walkers, followed by the Razzamatazz Gala at Leapin Lizard, 8th & Main Streets. The Gala includes a benefit auction for the Baker Hunt Arts Center Scholarship Program.
