Bluegrass Greensource (formerly Bluegrass PRIDE) will host its 11th Annual Rain Barrel Reception from 5-8 p.m. on June 20. The event will take place at the Fifth Third Bank Pavilion in Lexington’s Cheapside Park, and, for the third year, will be a part of Gallery Hop.
In addition to live entertainment and local refreshments, Greensource will raffle a barrel painted by local artist, Enrique Gonzalez. There also will be a silent auction for 20 barrels during the reception.
Painted by local artists, the barrels serve as a reminder of the importance of proper storm water management and are seen by thousands of people throughout Central Kentucky, both in person and online. Photos of each barrel are posted to Greensource’s website – www.bggreensource.org – where visitors can cast a vote for their favorite and learn more about storm water pollution. Once voting is completed, the artist who receives the most votes will win the coveted Earth Artist Award.
