What:
Pokémon and Opera at the Republic Bank First Friday HOP

 

Description:
This Republic Bank First Friday Hop will be filled with hunting down legendary music and legendary Pokémon. First, pick up a passport from a NuLu business and use it to find Kentucky Opera performers singing the best opera and musical theatre tunes from the last 65 years all over NuLu. As you wander, keep your Pokémon Go app open and visit over 50 Pokéstops activated with lure modules. Member locations will be sharing tips on where and how to power up and find rare Pokémon. There will be street art, vendors, BBQ to benefit the parks, Flea Off, haunted tours, food trucks, music, and more – so bring your appetite and your walking shoes! For those who prefer to escape the heat, there will be free Pokémon Safaris on the air-conditioned Zerobus. Meet up with other Pokemon Go players and catch the bus every hour in front of Zephyr Gallery.
