EGG ROLLIN' at the COVINGTON TRAILHEAD - APRIL 4th

FINAL EGG ROLLIN 2015

Join us in downtown Covington for our sixth annual Egg Rollin’ at the Covington Trailhead, 419 N. New Hampshire Street, on Saturday, April 4th, from 10 a.m. to noon. The event will feature the ‘Zoo 2 You’ petting zoo with baby springtime animals just in time for Easter.

In addition, children under the age of 12 should bring a decorated, personalized, hard-boiled egg for the 'Egg Rollin' activity. Prizes will be awarded for the “fastest” eggs in Covington.

The Kiwanis of Greater Covington will assist children with creating a personalized Easter surprise.  "Including 'hands-on' craft activities at all of our children's events at the Covington Trailhead is a key component to our programs.  The City welcomes the opportunity to foster our children's creativity with take-home souvenir art projects such as these.  We appreciate the tremendous help of the Kiwanis volunteers and are fortunate to have the support of Champagne Beverage in sponsorship of our children's events,"  Aimee Faucheux, Cultural Arts & Events Manager.

As an added treat for the parents, this children's event will be held in conjunction with the STAA Covington Art Market.  The St. Tammany Art Association, in partnership with the City of Covington, presents the Covington Art Market, a juried market of visual arts and crafts held six times per year on first Saturdays -- March, April, May, October, November and December. The Art Market is held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Covington Trailhead in historic downtown Covington and features a variety of work from local and regional artists, including jewelry, crafts, photography, paintings, woodworking, fiber art and more.

This event is free and open to the public.  For more information, contact Aimee Faucheux, City of Covington Office of Cultural Arts & Events, at 985-892-1873 or afaucheux@covla.com.
