April Weekends in Henderson Packed With Great Family-Friendly Activities and Events

April is the start of a busy month in Henderson. Great annual events, such as Tri-Fest and the Ohio Valley Birding Festival are held, and people come downtown to enjoy the riverfront and the warmer weather. This year is no different! With great activities each weekend, there is plenty to do in Henderson this month.

Start your day at 10am with the first guided historic walking tour of the year. This free tour is hosted by The Community Room. Tours start at The Depot, and continue throughout downtown, exploring the facades of historic homes and interesting river history.
