If you are like me, you’ve driven around downtown Covington and have seen one of two of the light displays with a prominent number. It didn’t take me long to figure out that these represented the twelve days of Christmas but I didn’t know where all twelve days were (I’m just really smart like that 😉
Recently I was looking for some event info and I stumbled across the map for these displays! So last night we headed out with the kids and endeavored to take a picture with each and every display. In order! All together it took us a little over an hour to visit each display and take a picture in front of them. My younger kiddos (nine, nine, and eight) had a blast–they liked taking turns singing and taking turns holding the camera.
Maps are available at the trailhead but I just kept one pulled up on my phone. I also had to keep a copy of the lyrics handy because it turns out I have trouble remembering them all. How many Lord are a leaping? How Maids a milking?
The displays are lighted dusk til dawn and will stay lit through January 6th (the twelfth night of Christmas). Take the kids and have some fun spotting all twelve.
Note: when we went, we drove right past the number four because it wasn’t lit for some reason. We still took a picture in front of it for continuity. Check out the video I made from our adventure below!
