One of Greenup County’s most popular tourism attractions will soon be expanding with a brand-new addition to their outdoor wonderland.
The grand opening of the Dragonfly Landing is scheduled to take place Saturday, January 18 at 4 p.m. at Dragonfly Outdoor Adventures, located at 550 Treasure Cove Road in Greenup.
The indoor space will be the new home of the Dragonfly Outdoor Café and Dragonfly Yoga, said Marketing and Events Coordinator, Kristen Matthews.
“Dragonfly Yoga will consist of an indoor aerial yoga studio space and weekly scheduled classes for both beginner and advanced students,” said Matthews. The courses are taught by an experienced and licensed 200RYT instructor.
The location will also be the future location of the Dragonfly Organic Garden, which will provide fresh produce for Dragonfly Café.
The grand opening of Dragonfly Landing will feature an open house to see the new addition, and the staff will be serving appetizers and beverages.
“Old friends we will be happy to see your faces, and new friends we can never have enough of,” said Matthews. “Come meet us and see what we are all about.”
Dragonfly Outdoor Adventures has been a tourism draw to Greenup County since 2014 and will celebrate their sixth year in business in June.
The business started after owners Myra Mosser and Sandy Mosser embarked on their first kayaking trip down Little Sandy River. Myra Mosser found herself in awe of a Japanese-style pagoda cabin and the landscaping of the property. Myra Mosser approached a gentleman cleaning the property to comment on its beauty, when she discovered it was for sale.
Matthews said two days later Myra Mosser and Sandy Mosser called a meeting with the rest of the family to inform them they now own a piece of property on the Little Sandy River. Thus, Dragonfly Outdoor Adventures was born.
Dragonfly Outdoors Adventures offers a variety of services including cabin rentals, venue rentals for outdoor weddings and events, event catering, kayak and canoe rentals on-site, and off-site excursions can be booked with advanced notice, scheduled group kayaking trips, an on-site food truck with handcrafted recipes made fresh each week, and the newest Dragonfly Landing. Dragonfly’s food truck has been spotted at several community events and is well known in the community for their popular fish tacos and fried green tomato BLT.
Dragonfly Outdoor Expeditions will be hosting their Free Youth Fly Fishing Clinics again this year as well.
“In 2020 we will be adding private lessons and adult fly-fishing clinics, as well as multi-day camping and kayaking excursions,” said Matthews.
Matthews said that kayaking season will begin in May, weather permitting, and opening ceremonies will kickoff with an event called Dragonfly’s Mad Hatter Tea Party on May 2. The details for this event are pending and will be available on the businesses Facebook page.
