Annual Halloween Block Party 2022

Annual Halloween Block Party 2022


The Latonia Business Association’s largest annual event is the Halloween Block Party. Every October, we – with the help of  many wonderful partners – host this entirely free family event, which brings thousands of folks to the Ritte’s Corner area for a fun-filled day full of super-heroes, princesses, ghosts, witches, and other costumed children of all ages!  Supported by the businesses and friends of the Latonia Business Association, free lunch and treats are provided, a costume contest judged by local dignitaries and emceed by the REAL Ronald McDonald, games, information booths, a trick-or-treat line, and much fun is shared by local families. Mark your calendars to join us on October 15, 2022.

To volunteer on this project, contact Tom Mitchell at 859-431-3982 or We always need great people to help make a great event!  Planning meetings are fun, too!

Small Business Saturday 2022



We invite you to join us on Small Business Saturday as we showcase the best of our Latonia Business District has to offer. Just like last year we are having a passport day in Latonia on November 26th. When you visit all the shops & eateries, please have them stamp your passport after you make a purchase. Please note, the passport raffle is for ages 18 & up this year as we have plenty of great things planed for the kids throughout the day.
We ‘re kicking off the morning bright & early at 7am when The Roost Latonia opens its doors to public serving up coffees and gingerbread. This is the first stop on our Destination Latonia adventure so make sure to pick your passport up while you are there.
Then swing through the district making sure to visit all the stops along the way until you filled your passport. Each business has different hours of operations so make sure to visit when they are open so you can collect those stamps.
When you completed your passport swing back to The Roost Latonia to enter your completed passport in the designated fishbowl. We will be randomly drawing names to win our raffle prizes at the Christmas Tree lighting in Ritte’s Corner that evening. You do not need to be present to win but we hope you are as we have over $500 in prizes and gift cards to give away.
