11th Annual Art in the Park
Bellevue's Art in the Park exemplifies every element of a great community festival — more than 70 regional artists, craftspeople, musicians, belly dancers and delicious eats in a charming urban greenspace — and it's back for the 11th year, sponsored by WNKU. The Bellevue Neighborhood Association will have a booth at this year's Art in the Park also! We will be selling plants, seed packets, and bulbs all perfect for planting in the fall weather. If you have any “fall planting” flowers or plants that you'd like to donate please contact Linda Fields at (859) 581-2398. See you Saturday, September 8th from 11am to 5pm, at the Bellevue Beach Park. The Beach Park is at the foot of Ward Avenue, along the scenic Ohio River. Following the festival (7 to 10pm) Forever Diamond, a Neil Diamond tribute band, will play. Spread the word! Click here to learn more about Art in the Park.

Tips & Tricks
Irritating Plants
Poison Ivy and Poison Oak are not the only plants to avoid. Many plants we see and work around every day can be dangerous. Beware of the following:
Yew pine (Japanese Yew) is a heavy pollen producer – allergy sufferers beware. Don't plant under windows as the pollen can carry indoors.
Hellebore, or Lenten Rose produces sap that can be irritating if it gets on skin. All parts of the plant are poisonous.
Lobelia, bedding annual used in containers, (L. inflate) The poison in this plant can cause vomiting, tremors, and heart problems.
