Watch a German Puppet Show
Watch an authentic German mechanical puppet show in Goebel Parkin Covington. The production happens every hour, on the hour—just keep your eyes on the historic Carroll Chimes Clock Tower.

A crew of female goats grazes spring through fall to keep grass and weeds neatly trimmed. 501 Philadelphia St., Covington, covingtonky.gov
