  • Colorfest this weekend at Bernheim

     CLERMONT - It’s not every day you can launch a pumpkin into the air, work your way through a hay maze, and check out the beautiful natural autumn colors.

    At least not along with food vendors, live music, and educational programs.

    Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest provides all that and more during its annual ColorFest celebration, scheduled this year for Oct. 21 and 22.

  • Setting Goals

     It was a Goal Setting Extravaganza at Mount Washington Elementary that featured guests from throughout the community and throughout the state.

    Lieutenant Governor Jenean Hampton celebrated her 100th school visit with a stop at the school. Hampton spoke to students about the importance of setting goals and how things like homework but not always be enjoyable but it’s always helpful.

  • THINK PINK: Annual awareness to broaden scope to all varieties of cancer

    SHEPHERDSVILLE—October may signify the return of pumpkin spice lattes and sweater-weather, but it also serves as a month of breast cancer awareness.

    Each year, the Bullitt County Health Department, the Kentucky Cancer Program and the Bullitt County Cooperative Extension Service work to ensure residents “think pink” by hosting the annual Think Pink evening at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre in Shepherdsville.

    On Tuesday, Oct. 17, both men and women are invited to attend the free event from 5-7:30 p.m.

  • Who Killed the Witch of the East?

     The fourth annual Dancing for the Arts fundraiser took a different road this year…the yellow brick road.

    “I think this year’s event was a huge success,” said Bullitt County Arts Council President Terri Amody. “It brought smiles to face from 9 years of age to 91.”

    Performing a twist on “the Wizard of Oz”, community members spent eight weeks learning not only to dance but to act, too.

  • OH...what a day

     It was a glorious weekend for the Lebanon Junction Wall Street Park festival.

    From the entertainment to the booths to the annual parade, large crowds came out to celebrate last Friday and Saturday.

    The festival is now located in the Wall Street Park, which is growing each year.

    The perfect weather helped draw out one of the largest crowds in history.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Local students learned tips from the experts to be safer citizens at the Farm and Home Safety Day, presented by the Bullitt County Farm Bureau, the Bullitt County Conservation District, and the Bullitt County Cooperative Extension Service.

    The event was held in conjunction with the Family Resource Centers at Cedar Grove, Lebanon Junction, and Roby Elementary, with students from each of the schools participating.

  • FAMILY FEST 2017

     Formerly the Longest Day of Play, the Bullitt County Health Department sponsored Family Fest at Little Flock Baptist Church on Saturday.

    The goal was to get people out to take part in some physical activity.

    The crowd participated in a number of activities, as well as enjoying some food and getting information from various vendors.

    The event was organized by the health department's Coalition for Recreation, Education and Wellness (C.R.E.W.) in association with the Kentucky Coalition for Healthy Communities (KCHC)

  • Diabetes Awareness Walk

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Kentucky Coalition for Healthy Communities, in association with the Bullitt Coalition for Recreation, Education and Wellness (C.R.E.W.), hosted the annual Walk/Run for Diabetes Awareness as the Shepherdsville City Park.

    A group of Kentucky counties compete each year to collect the most steps walked or ran within an hour, with pedometers used by each participant to count steps.

    This year KCHC and C.R.E.W. made a challenge to participants for 300,000 collective steps, far more than their usual goal of 100,000 steps.

  • Annual festival is community celebration

     LEBANON JUNCTION— Like every year, the Lebanon Junction Fire Department will lead the way for the annual Wall Street Park Festival Parade on Saturday, Sept. 30.  This year, though, they, along with the police department and EMT workers, will lead the way as the grand marshals.

    “We just haven’t honored them in any way,” committee member Allie Phillips said. “Even though they’re not going to do a float, they’re still going to ride on all their vehicles.”

  • WINEFEST 2017

     CLERMONT - After several attempts, the Kentucky Wineries Association picked a weekend with pleasant weather to celebrate their annual WineFest at the Bullitt County Fairgrounds.

    Ten of the state’s best wineries were available to patrons for tastings and both glass and bottle purchases.

    This year’s event included a VIP area, where some of the best Kentucky wines were presented.

    Food and craft booths were also available to the patrons, along with live music.
