Ludlow to Host Live Well Event, Progressive Porch Party

The City of Ludlow adopted its roughly $4 million budget on Thursday night at a relatively short meeting.

Police Chief Scott Smith said that there are now three bike patrols working in the city and that the new drug dog program is getting results, though the police department is finding drug users are not abusing as much publicly in the city, but rather outside the city limits or inside private homes.

Smith also invited the public to the Live Well program being hosted at Ludlow Park. It is Saturday, June 11, from noon to 3 p.m. and there will be fifteen different vendors promoting healthy lifestyles. St. Elizabeth, Children's, and Christ Hospitals, Pediatric of Northern Kentucky, Buttermilk Dentistry, the Northern Kentucky Health Department, Ludlow Pharmacy, and others will be among the vendors. 

Chief Smith also said that there will be four or five activity-based stations where visitors can learn yoga, fitness, youth exercises, and events for families. 

Ludlow is one of five cities working with the Live Well program to incorporate more healthy lifestyle choices into residents' lives.

Also on Saturday, you can catch "Music & Hollywood", an art showing by artist Alfonso B. Huckleberry, Sr. at Wynner's Cup Cafe (301 Elm Street).

There will be more fun to be had in Ludlow next weekend, too. 

The Progressive Porch Party - a southern-style affair sponsored by the Ludlow Historic Society - is scheduled for Saturday, June 18, from 5 - 8 p.m. There will be traditional food and drinks, with music on 5 historic porches - including the long back porch of the famous Somerset House. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at Folk School Coffee Parlor on Elm Street or by calling 859-291-2976 or e-mailing [email protected]com. $17 on day of event.
