The Holiday Season Begins at BCM
The Trains Are Coming!
Holiday Traditions@BCM Opens This Saturday, Nov. 16
Toy trains will click-clack down the tracks, snow dogs will spin on the ice rink and BCM will be aglow with lights, music and the holiday spirit when the 2019 Holiday Traditions@BCM opens Saturday, November 16, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

This is the 28th year for BCM’s  Holiday Toy Trains  display with its 250 feet of track and more than 30 guest-activated displays. Guests can also enjoy  Wahoo’s Winter Wonderland , a kid-size, animated exhibit based on the children’s book by Kenton Hills author Diana Grady, “The Holiday Adventures of Wiley Wahoo & Me,” plus special Polar Express and Wahoo readings, Santa visits, holiday concerts and more. 

Also, just behind the Holiday Toy Trains exhibit is a miniature town right out of the books of Charles Dickens. “Christmas Victorian England,” is an elaborate display of dozens of lighted Studio 56 ceramic miniatures depicting scenes from Dickens’ life and novels, arranged each year by the Queen City Villagers.
Holiday Traditions@BCM, which is sponsored by Central Bank, will be on display until Sunday, January 5, 2020. The exhibits are free for museum members. For non-members, they are included with paid admission: $9 for adults, $8 for seniors 60+ and $5 for children.

Bringing the Bavarian Brewery Back to Life
Grand Opening Friday, Nov. 15
Bavarian Brewery, founded in 1866, was once the largest enterprise of its kind in Kentucky until
Prohibition, and then competition from national brewers, eventually put it out of business.

For decades, the Bavarian building sat vacant, except for a brief period as an entertainment complex, until it was purchased by Kenton County in 2016 as the site for its new administration building.

The revitalized site will be a modern, efficient government complex  And with the help of Behringer-Crawford Museum and a generous donation from L. Ried Schott, son, grandson and great grandson of the former owners of the Bavarian, it will retain a strong sense of its history. As visitors walk through the renovated building, they wi ll see exhibits of photographs, drawings, advertising signs and other artifacts which celebrate the Bavarian's legacy.

The grand opening of the Kenton County Government Center at 1840 Simon Kenton Way, Covington, is this Friday, Nov. 15 at 5:30 p.m. The exhibit will be BCM’s first satellite gallery.
