Kettering Block Party to feature a bike tour of sculptures — and free ice cream

Teaching children to appreciate public art while having fun will be part of this year’s annual Kettering Block Party. 

Bike the Arts, a Kettering Arts Council initiative formed in 2013, will host a Walk/Bike the Arts tour of sculptures throughout Lincoln Park Civic Commons Monday during the annual community celebration. 

»»Your guide to art galleries in Dayton

In past years, Bike the Arts has hosted longer bike rides through the community but intentionally made the route shorter this year so adults and children could participate together, said Shayna V. McConville, City of Kettering cultural arts manager. 

“The great thing about the location is we have a ton of public art there, so it seemed like a really good fit.” The route, less than a mile, will begin near the Fraze Pavilion. 

Bicyclists and walkers of all ages can navigate to five sculptures in the park and learn about the artwork and  artists from Kettering Arts Council volunteers. 

Among the installations on the tour are the wistful “Old Man and His Dog,” a bronze sculpture by Glenna Goodacre, and the soaring aluminum “Song and Dance,” by artist Barry Gunderson, the first public sculpture installed in Lincoln Park Civic Commons.

“These are really important works to Kettering and are part of our legacy,” said McConville. “These are pieces that we’ve invested in that demonstrate our commitment to a healthy vibrant community.” 

Participants can pick up a passport and map at the start located on Lincoln Park Boulevard East near the Fraze. The passports will be stamped along the journey through the outdoor artistry. Free swag will be available at the Kettering Arts Council booth at the finish. 

During the block party the City of Kettering will provide free bicycle helmet fittings for children ages 5 to 16.

“I hope that kids will see public arts a little differently, perhaps with more information or more thoughtfulness,” said McConville. “And that they recognize the value of our public spaces. Our parks are glorious and these artworks really enhance each public space.” 

WANT TO GO?

What: The Kettering Block Party and Bike/Walk the Arts

Why cows (and other ingredients) need to fear Dayton Burger Week 

We have some sad news for cows. 

As we told you last week, Dayton Burger Week is coming Aug. 6 to 12. It is expected to be beefier than any of us expected. 

>> RELATED: Can you eat your way through Dayton’s ‘Burger Bermuda Triangle’?

Burger Week organizer Tony Frank said one single man in Cincinnati downed 52 burgers during that city’s burger week last year. 

Yes, 1 DUDE TOOK DOWN 52 BURGERS in a week. 

“It was a week of gluttony,” Frank said of the seven-day festival, a partnership between Cincinnati CityBeat, a Euclid Media Group newspaper, and The Ohio Beef Council.

Eating 52 burgers is not necessarily advisable and far from the norm, but Frank said people really get into trying gourmet burgers created by local chefs.

“Restaurants go through thousands and thousands of pounds of beef during these weeks,” he said. “Burgers are very popular right now and a lot of people take pride in the creation of burgers.”

Slated this year July 16 to 22, Cincinnati Burger Week launched in 2015. 

More than 50,000 burgers were sold during the last burger week in Cincinnati. 

Everything from shrimp to peanut butter has been used to create burgers for Cincinnati’s burger week.
