Home Depot: Kids Workshop 9am-12pm

Kids ages 5-12 will learn to build a Penske moving truck while learning tool safety at Home Depot this Saturday. This will be a fun one for my kids, since we are moving soon!

All kids get to keep their craft and receive a Free Kids Workshop Apron, commemorative pin and certificate of achievement. Safety goggles and tools will be provided.

Berry Blast Weekend at Hidden Valley Fruit Farm 12pm-5pm

Hidden Valley Fruit Farm will be celebrating Berry themed treats all weekend. From 12pm-5pm on Saturday there will be Live Music, Train Rides and Family Fun! A baby goat that’s only a week old will be available to meet the public. Awwww! Come try some product samples and buy some fresh-grown produce while you’re there!

Honey Hill Farm Petting Zoo: Sharonville Branch Library 2pm

Come over to the Sharonville library Saturday for your chance to feed and pet animals from Honey Hill Farm, including a miniature horse, miniature donkey, an alpaca, bunnies, goats, sheeps and ducks. This experience is sure to delight little ones!

Colerain Township 4th of July Spectacular 8pm

Earlier this year this event was cancelled due to budget constraints. Then in March Northgate Mall and their affiliate Tabani chose to fund the Fireworks and the event will go on! Yay! My family has enjoyed this show on more than one occasion.

Free shuttle parking will begin at 8pm from Northgate Mall, Colerain HS and Colerain MS. The fireworks will be at 10pm. We’ve had great luck using the shuttle system in the past. It is run smoothly. Be sure to bring blankets and chairs. Don’t forget your water bottle!

Movies & Concerts & Puppet Show!
