What's the Point? A 3-Day Festival of Fun at Roebling Point

What's the point?

Businesses in Covington's Roebling Point area will host a celebratory festival this weekend to answer that question.

"What's the Point?" aims to draw awareness to the business district, and is sponsored by Smoke Justis, one of the businesses in the area bounded by 4th Street, Third Street, Scott Blvd. and Greenup Street.

The event runs Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, September 28-30, and will also benefit the Team Kenton Foundation, which provides for low-income students within the Kenton County School District.

Park and Court streets will close for this event beginning Friday at 8 p.m. with music by Buffalo Wabs and the Price Hill Hustle. Participating bars will sell Budweiser and Bud Light at a price of 5 for $5 dollars from 8 to midnight.

On Saturday, the fun starts at 9 a.m. with the Covington Farmers Market, a petting zoo, face painting and Circus Mojo. Then, from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., a giant zip line will zoom down Park Street. The Rhinegeist Game area, Bircus Brewing Big Top experience, and music by Freedom Nicole Moore, Elementree Livity Project, and Fourth Day Echo will also highlight the evening.

On Sunday, the day begins with a Bloody Mary Fest with participants from the district vying for the title of best Bloody Mary.  

The Bengals game will play on a 7-ft. by 12-ft. television outside. Following that, the Covington Street Hockey teams will put on an exhibition.
