Covington’s Spooky Secrets Revealed During Walking Tours

The Spooky Secrets Walking Tours

Covington has a rich history and parts of it are pretty spooky. To celebrate the Halloween season, two local women are teaming up to share these creepy secrets with the curious.

The Spooky Secrets walking tours are around 90 minutes long and start on Covington’s riverfront. They end in the MainStrasse Village neighborhood, where guests can remain for dinner or drinks or, if they prefer, they can walk back to the starting point with the tour guide.

Spooky Secrets Tour Flyer in Covington, KY
Spooky Secrets Tour – Covington, KY

Kathy Witt and Jill Morenz worked together to uncover the stories they share on the tours. Kathy Witt is the author of Secret Cincinnati, which highlights several dozen weird, wonderful or obscure places in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati. Jill Morenz, Director of the NKY Public Arts Network, guides the tours.

What You Will See

During the 2-mile walk, you’ll learn the real identity of the Grey Lady of Carneal House and meet Captain Mary B. Greene, who meddled in the lives of her friends after she died. You’ll picture the chaos of a ravaged cemetery and find out why dogs won’t enter the basement of a former hospital. You’ll peek inside mystical and creepy shops and hear gory tales hiding behind things you see every day.

You will also receive a signed copy of Secret Cincinnati, as well as a special bookmark that serves as a checklist for the locations included in the book.

Tickets and Dates

If you love ghost stories, you’ll enjoy the Spooky Secrets tour! Individual tickets are $29.99 and include one book.

A pair of tickets costs $39.99 and includes one book for the two people to share. See available dates and purchase tickets here.

Urban Home Tour Takes You Beyond the Curb in Latonia

Beyond the Curb Tour

If you haven’t been to Covington’s Latonia neighborhood in a while, you’re in for a treat! The Catalytic Fund’s popular Beyond the Curb Urban Living Tour is focusing their October 2nd tour in this charming area.

This will be the twelfth of these tours, which showcase the range of housing options in Northern Kentucky’s urban river cities, while encouraging you to explore the architecture, art and businesses that make the region so vibrant.

On the Tour

The October 2nd tour offers an exclusive peek inside more than a dozen interesting properties, including historic buildings, artsy renovations, cute bungalows and updated apartments. There will also be a few businesses on the tour that are using old buildings in new ways, such as an event venue in a “mansion” and a music performance space inside a decommissioned church.

As you walk along the pretty streets, you’ll come upon beautiful gardens, fun public art, quirky shops and inviting restaurants. Latonia is experiencing a rebirth, as new businesses open and young families move in.

Latonia was an independent town from 1896-1909, when it was annexed by Covington. It is probably best known for the Latonia Racetrack, which was located at the current site of the Latonia Shopping Center on Winston Ave. The first race held there was in 1883 and the Latonia Derby debuted in 1888.The track closed in 1939.

This Beyond the Curb tour starts at the Roost Latonia, a quirky shop that serves coffee and cocktails. They also have an ever-changing stock of vintage or vintage-inspired art, home décor items, apparel and toys. On tour day, you’ll pick up your tour booklet, wristband and event bag there.

Beyond the Curb tours are a fun way to get to know the river cities a little better and experience urban living, NKY-style. Learn more about the Latonia tour here.

Wizarding Workshops at Baker Hunt Art & Cultural Center

Hogwarts - Harry Potter
Hogwarts – Harry Potter

Got your wand and robes? Good—you’re ready for the Hogwarts-inspired art workshops, trivia and dinner feast hosted on August 27 at Covington’s Baker Hunt Art & Cultural Center.

It all started when the leadership team at Baker Hunt decided to do a day of themed workshops. Someone suggested Harry Potter and the whole evening came together, almost like magic!

All the guests are encouraged to dress up in their favorite HP-inspired garb, so now’s the time to dig out your Gryffindor scarf or witch’s hat. If you happen to have a lightning-shaped scar on your forehead, you’ll fit right in.

Wizarding Workshops

All the classes are for the 21 and older crowd. Whether you arrive via the Hogwarts Express, the Floo Network or by apparating, here’s what you can expect from the day of Wizarding Workshops:

Make a custom ceramic butterbeer flagon. It can have images of the Three Broomsticks, Weasley’s Wheeze’s, the Dark Mar, the Deathly Hallows or your favorite Hogwarts House.

Learn to make a “cobweb” broom, using basic weaving techniques and natural broomcorn. Everyone will complete at least one broom during the class and most people have time to make two (one for you, one for your familiar).

Paint the Hogwarts castle, bathed in moonlight. Your own talents will add the magic to this acrylic painting.

If your favorite wizards are Fred and George Weasley, you’ll love this improv comedy class—don’t worry, it’s muggle-friendly. You’ll play games like Letter to Hogwarts, Wizarding Dating Game and Muggle Translator. Giggles are guaranteed!

Whip up some culinary magic in this wizardly cooking class. Headmaster/Chef Kubicki will help you create (and eat) Mandrake Salad, Hungarian Horntail Paprikash, Edible Wands and Polyjuice Potion. Mrs. Weasley would approve!

Show your house pride with handmade ceramic coasters, one for each Hogwarts house. You’ll glaze them during the workshop and then pick them up later after they’ve been fired.

Signing Up

When you register for one of the workshops, you can reserve a free seat at Trivia Night in the ballroom, where you’ll compete for a handmade themed drink set. You can also purchase an adult beverage from the Three Broomsticks bar.

Information about all the classes and trivia is available on the Fantastic Workshops and Where to Find Them webpage.

For fans of Harry Potter and his friends, this day of wizarding workshops will be a blast. As they say at Baker Hunt, you’ll have more fun than a Niffler running amok in a Gringotts vault!

NKY Bourbon Barrel Walk: A Celebration of Art and Bourbon

In 2019, two Northern Kentucky organizations, the Catalytic Fund and the NKY Chamber of Commerce, organized a project that brought together businesses with artists to create painted bourbon barrels.

The barrels are coming back this month in a celebration of the people, places and passions of our region. The 100 barrels were created by local artists for sponsors who worked with them on the designs. The result is a stunning display of public art that will debut this Thursday, July 21.

Roll Out the Barrels is a public preview of all 100 barrels before they go on display throughout the river cities on the NKY Bourbon Barrel Walk. To join in and see all the barrels together, come to Newport on the Levee on Thursday July 21 at 7:00pm.

Once the Walk goes live, you can find the route at

The art on the barrels celebrates Northern Kentucky’s people, places and passions, depicting bourbon, horses, landmarks and more. It showcases the incredible local talent and the support that the business community gives to the arts.

The barrels will be on display through next August. When you “take the walk,” you will follow the barrels through the entertainment districts of Northern Kentucky, discovering fun restaurants, bars and shops along the way.
