Got cabin fever? Here is a cure for the winter blues. The forecast this weekend is going to be sunny and warm – highs in the 60’s. So why not pretend that you are vacationing in Florida? Come on down to Bellevue and save yourself the airfare. Winter Carnival In Vue returns to Bellevue, Kentucky’s historic Fairfield Avenue 11am to 3pm on Saturday, February 20, bringing with it family-friendly carnival fun and games.
Strolling Shrine Circus clowns, Presto Paul the magician, a balloon twister, face painters and the roving Pickled Brothers, who will perform feats of fire-eating and sword swallowing, will entertain visitors to Winter Carnival In Vue.
Four giant artist-created photo boards will be set up in Fairfield Avenue shops. Kids can get their pictures taken with each board – and enter a drawing at each of the four locations to win one of two photo boards: Anna and Elsa and Star Wars’ Kylo Ren. The drawing for the photo boards will take place at the close of the carnival. Visitors can also enter a drawing to win a set of four tickets to the Syrian Shrine Circus (Feb.26-28 at BB&T Arena on NKU’s campus). Four sets of circus tickets will be given away immediately following the carnival.
Bellevue merchants will be accepting donations on behalf of the Shriners. The Shriners of North America support Shriners Hospitals for Children, a world-class network of 22 pediatric specialty hospitals located throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. Since 1922, Shriners Hospitals for Children have significantly improved the lives of more than 800,000 children.
This event is generously sponsored by Citizens Bank of Northern Kentucky, Cleves and Lonnemann Jewelers, and Northern Kentucky Tribune.
