Patrons will enjoy an evening of live music at multiple locations, indoors and out, art demonstrations and special performances, the Mix Masters Martini Competition (free samples!), shopping at couture fashion boutiques, antique and home furnishings shops, and more.

Long known for its stellar dining scene, Covington is home to a combination of several fine dining restaurants with award-winning chefs as well as bistros and cafés with lighter fare. Round out the evening with dancing and drinks at the town's nightspots, such as Columbia Street Rockin' Blues, Wharton's, Columbia Street Tap Room and Seiler Bar, and other locations.
