Mayor Mark Johnson announces a new animated history video now playing daily at the Covington Trailhead Museum.
Oxlot’s Whimsical History of Covington, by Wally Faucheux and the Covington Heritage Foundation, is a journey through Covington’s history in a fun and lively animation. Entertaining for all ages, but a special treat for kids. Parents can check out Covington: Our Little Town, a historical film also featured at the museum.
The Covington Trailhead Museum, 419 N New Hampshire St., is open Monday through Saturday 10am to 2pm and Sundays noon to 4pm. Located on the St. Tammany Trace – make a bike trip of it! Brooks’ Bike Shop is just up the block. Mayor Mark reminds us that the mini water tower at the Trailhead has hidden fun – a spigot on the back left column releases water on (sometimes unaware) persons below. A great way to cool off with the kids or surprise unsuspecting friends!
