at the event for $20 per per­son. The fes­ti­val is free to the pub­lic.

The Lit­er­acy Fes­ti­val Stage will pro­vide en­ter­tain­ment through­out the event, in­clud­ing chil­dren’s per­former BB Fuzz hosted by Arts As­so­ci­a­tion in New­ton County and spon­sored by Main Street Cov­ing­ton; the Cousins Mid­dle School Band; Oak Hill Ele­men­tary School Cho­rus; Montes­sori School of Cov­ing­ton; and Heav­enly Dance Steps. Also, be­cause Sept. 8 was In­ter­na­tional Lit­er­acy Day, some schools may have had char­ac­ter pa­rades dur­ing the week. Stu­dents are in­vited to wear their char­ac­ter cos­tumes to the Lit­er­acy Fes­ti­val and to par­tic­i­pate in a Char­ac­ter Pa­rade.

The Side­walk Chalk Art com­pe­ti­tion, be­gun in 2007, is open to stu­dents reg­is­ter­ing as in­di­vid­u­als or group en­tries. There is no cost to par­tic­i­pate; a 12pack of art chalk will be pro­vided on a first-come first-serve ba­sis to the first 30 in­di­vid­ual par­tic­i­pants; team en­tries must pro­vide their own pal­ette of chalk. Draw­ing will be­gin at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 12:30 p.m. for judg­ing. The theme for this year’s en­tries is “A Pic­ture is Worth a Thou­sand Words.” Par­tic­i­pants can get a regis­tra­tion form from their school art teacher or by con­tact­ing The Learn­ing Cen­ter. Par­tic­i­pants may reg­is­ter the day of the event if spa­ces are still avail­able.
