Who is ready for SUMMER??? Oh, me, pick me! This past Saturday in Cincinnati was absolutely amazing and it reminded me of a classic summer day. We worked in the yard, took a walk around the neighborhood, had snacks and picnics on the driveway and pulled out every riding toy imaginable, it was a perfect day. One problem, it was reminding of how much I miss these summer-like days and I want them all NOW!
Kick off your summer with me and my family as we get ready with a “Yeehaw!” for the first annual Summer Fun on the Farm Festival at Bonnybrook Farms. I can’t wait for the live country music, BBQ foods, dozens of attractions and fun contests for the entire family. A bonus to the fun-filled day is that a portion of the proceeds will benefit River Of Hope Ranch, a local non-profit offering equine-assisted mental health counseling to children, teens and adults.
Here is a nice writeup about what you can expect at the Summer Fun on the Farm Festival at Bonnybrook Farms on Saturday, June 20th:
The day starts out at 10am with a family fun 5K trail run/walk. The course will run throughout the 370 acres of beautiful farmland with fresh air, rolling hills and creekside views. Participants of the 5K will receive a t-shirt and FREE entry into the festival for the entire day.
At noon, let the music begin with the talented Noah Smith Band Nominated for the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards for Best New Artist, Best Country Artist and Best Singer/Songwriter. Next in the line-up is the popular Americana band, Wilder. We are excited to bring some fun country music to the farm.
Throughout the day, the Farm Kitchen will be serving smokin’ good BBQ and farm fresh sides. Enjoy a refreshing beer, ice cold drink or ice cream as you take in the day’s events.
Want to try something unique? Bonnybrook Farms offers one-of-a-kind activities at theActivity Zone with giant slingshots, clodhopper golf, and an 80’ underground slide. Various farm characters and animals will also be there to greet you.
