Taking advantage of its perch high atop a hillside in Covington’s Devou Park, Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky annually holds a Labor Day weekend fireworks party. In past years, the party has been used more as a ‘friend’-raiser than a fundraiser. We believe there’s a way to accomplish both, though – to build bridges with folks in the community while also raising critically-needed funds for our organization. So in 2011, the CHNK Development team revamped the party.
The sprawling front lawn of the Home’s Covington campus, overlooking the Ohio River and downtown Covington and Cincinnati, provides a prime viewing area for the WEBN fireworks display. Parking is available along the lawn’s tree line, on both sides of Home Road, and at the Behringer-Crawford Museum’s parking lot (just a short walk down the road from the Home).
Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, camping chairs, or blankets. We do not permit coolers, outside food and beverage, or pets. Once on the CHNK grounds, guests have a variety of food and beverage options available for purchase, including grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, bratwursts, soda, water, beer, and wine.
Face painting, balloon animals, and other activities entertain the children in attendance, while a 90-minute live concert from the Ohio Valley Big Band is performed for adults prior to the fireworks . When the fireworks begin, the soundtrack is simulcast across the lawn through a professional sound system.
Other fireworks parties are held each year by local businesses – on both sides of the river! – with similar views of the riverfront. Our event, however, is the only one where your admission price has a direct and immediate impact on the hundreds of abused, neglected, and at-risk children and families we serve every year at the Home.
Get your tickets now, and we’ll see you at the Home on Sunday, September 2, 2012!
