RiverArts Festival SUCCESS

From Front Street Cafe Facebook
















The Village of New Richmond on the Ohio has a new "can't miss" event with the inaugral RiverArts Festival. Two days of art, music, food and more was featured along the river this past weekend and it certainly exceeded expectations.

Despite the gloomy Saturday weather, Front Street was filled with artisans and Festival reverlers, as well as the sounds of awesome music from the Park across from the Green Kayak. The musicians in the Park somehow held-off the rain to allow for a great day. We particularly liked the "Generations" band on Saturday, the native-american sounds of Steve Free on Sunday and the awesome sounds of a band called "Eden Park" (also on Sunday).....This town is becoming known for hosting excellent music, funky events and supporting outdoor fun

We encourage the Village and the business folks to keep up the great work. What's next????

Jacob the Peacock (on the Ohio)




So where did Jacob, the local Village of New Richmond on the Ohio peacock, come from.?This majestic creature struts around town visiting businesses and homes. He poses for pictures and clearly looks as if he owns the town. Here's a few pics.......








Does anyone have answers?



We're Back! Sorry for the lost moments

Well, after quite a hiatus, we're back and enjoying the river life. What's so cool about the river is that it's never the same water that flows by twice. Each drop is on an adventure heading down river towards the Gulf of Mexico. We encourage you to stop by New Richmond on the Ohio, walk the beach and stick your toes in the water.....

This weekend in New Richmond on the Ohio will be a celebration of art. Our understanding is that high school kids and adults alike will share their art on Saturday and Sunday (12n-6p). This should be a fun event down along the river (across from the Green Kayak). We are looking forward to stopping down for the fun. We got this pamphlet off of Facebook.

Short History of Bullskin Trace:Ohio's First Super Highway....

 



Bullskin Trace, borne of the trace of buffalo and other large animals tracking through Ohio to the salt licks in Kentucky, was one of the first super-highways in the United States. The Trace starts at the mouth of Bullskin Creek and the Ohio River in Clermont County (Ohio), and served as a roadway from the Ohio River to the Great Lakes for native americans, early settlers and escaping slaves.  The history along the Ohio River in Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia and beyond is so intriguing.....If only the hills and trails could talk!

American Queen Riverboat to Visit New Richmond On The Ohio On July 8

This little Village just keeps getting things done. It looks like the American Queen (passenger vessel) Riverboat will be visiting the shores of New Richmond on July 8 (5 pm-7 pm). The whistle will be blowing and the carpet rolled out (so we here) to greet the folks aboard. What a great family event and a beautiful drive down along the Ohio River.....It's just so cool to see one of these vessels floating down the river and wondering about the past river life. Hope to see you in New Richmond on the Ohio.....
