At Eagle Aviation's Cessna Pilot Center, potential pilots get the rare chance to learn the fundamentals of flying in a secure, well-maintained Cessna aircraft. The training begins with a pre-takeoff briefing on flight protocols and a thorough inspection of the plane. Aspiring aviators and an FAA-certified instructor then lift off in an up-to-date Cessna 172SP for some soaring, basic maneuvering, and taking in sweeping views of Lexington County from 3,500 feet. The entire experience from engine startup to shutdown is approximately 30 minutes long. After the student helps land and taxi the aircraft, a postflight briefing addresses questions and reviews lessons learned throughout the celestial jaunt. Each flight allows room for a friend to share the thrill and corroborate Pegasus sightings.
While the Titanic won the title of the largest ship of its day, it’s still helping to break records 100 years after its fatal voyage. That’s because Creepy Ridge’s trifecta of haunted attractions includes a replica of the ship's cabin, and it’s currently being verified as the world’s largest hay wagon by the Guinness Book of World Records. You'll start your terrifying journey inside the ship, encountering the ghosts of many of the vessel's lost souls before docking and checking in to the Death Row Haunted Motel. There, you'll come face-to-face with other horrors, such as tiny toiletries that replenish themselves every time you leave. Should you survive long enough to check out, magic shows from Allen the Astonisher await to awe and inspire every half hour, and a nearby concession booth serves up hot dishes and drinks such as funnel cakes, hot chocolate, and cookies.
Proceeds from the night’s attractions go to help the Arc of Northern Kentucky’s mission to help provide opportunities to special-needs children.
Breitenstein Frame Shoppe offers a large selection of pre-framed art, gifts, and custom framing options in its cozy gallery. The walls are gracefully plastered with framed photos and paintings, and a long display of multicolored frame options lurks just behind the shop’s counter. With extensive experience framing everything from broken boat oars to whole boat oars, framing experts Carl and Kathleen Breitenstein can custom frame almost anything, including boat oars, be they broken or whole. Framing prices can range from as little as $40 to around $200; however, a 16"x20" frame will typically cost about $80 without a mat and about $100 matted. Customers can also choose to direct their Groupon’s value toward the shop’s stock of limited edition prints, contemporary photos, or sinus-soothing Candleberry candles.
A loud whistle sounds off in the distance, signaling the arrival of a steam locomotive. The train pulls past dozens of trees and into the station. It’s just another day at the Kentucky Railway Museum, where new and restored trains take visitors on nostalgic journeys through the New Haven countryside. The area’s scenic landscapes encompass 17 miles of track that meander around scenic Mount Vernon. The stationary exhibit hall—a replica of the original New Haven depot—houses a collection of railroad artifacts and memorabilia ranging from rail carts and dining cars to steam whistles and the discarded mustaches of malevolent railroad barons.
In 1909, a group of local art enthusiasts banded together to foster a community appreciation for art and further the practice of creating art. More than three decades later, they moved from their home at the old Water Tower, and now fill their new space with workshops, classes, and exhibits. Louisville Visual Art Association remains dedicated to promoting local artists, artistic styles, and contemporary culture.
A team of instructors instills painting and sculpting skills in children of all ages with the Children's Fine Art Classes program, which lets kids hone their understanding of color and technique during nearly 40 classes and camps. They also teach adult art classes, and help economically and socially disadvantaged students exhibit their artwork through Open Doors. Six to eight annual exhibitions often showcase work from these programs, but may also display fabric and knit pieces from local artists, or house events such as custom plates, cups, and utensils fashioned by 16 national ceramics artists to recreate Salvador Dali’s themed dinner parties. Each year, staff also fill two galleries with up to 800 works from its children’s programs, and celebrate local restaurants and music at the annual Bacon Ball.
Designer and namesake, Craig Kaviar, has more than 30 years of experience creating sculptures and functional metalwork. He and a team of skilled artisans churns out intricate works that are both artful and functional using traditional blacksmithing practices with a modern twist. The tour provides a behind the scenes look into the workings of the forge and live demonstrations allow visitors to witness the master metalworkers do their thing. They’ll heat raw materials to temperatures exceeding 2,000 degrees, using both a traditional coal forge and Kaviar's innovative, eco-friendly forge, fueled by waste vegetable oil and recycled Meat Loaf albums. The tour begins with a visit to the media room and a discussion on the history of metallurgy, from the discovery of copper, to the Bronze Age, to the 'Metal as Junk Food' movement of the 1870's.
