A Fair Filled Weekend

Old Louisville Spring Fest
It’s very exciting to see that there are a lot of things going on in the city! So I started a Calendar of Events to keep track of them all.  Check it out on the tab on top.  I love a bargain and free events, so the events listed will be heavier on those.  Still slowing adding events. Bad news though is that it’s not that great on mobile devices.  For a more comprehensive list, check out www.Louisville.com.

My ambitious plan this weekend (even though my husband prefers that I stay home and mulch)
  1. Old Louisville Spring Fest| Friday & Saturday | 5 p.m. - 9 p.m.| Oak and 1st.
    Street fair in Old Louisville.  Crossing my fingers that my favorite soul food truck Da’ville Grill and Catering will be there with the best fried chicken in town.
  2. Louisville Quest | Saturday | 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. | Visitor's Office, 4th and Jefferson
    Scavenger Hunt at area attractions, for free, and a cool official Louisville t-shirt at the end.  Last one is next Saturday.
  3. Bardstown Bound: Saturday | Noon - whenever | Bardstown  Road
    Strolling down Bardstown Road should be more exciting today with sales and specials on merchandise, foods and drinks. Beer Fest at Valu Market for beer enthusiasts.  The trolley will also run 2 p.m. - 10 p.m.
  4. St. Matthews Fair | Saturday | 11 a.m. - 10 p.m.| Frankfort Ave b/w Lexington Rd to Bauer Ave
    A street fair along Frankfort Ave featuring local attraction, business and entertainment.
  5. Buy Local Fair | Suday | 12 p.m. - 6 p.m.| Water Tower | $5 to park
    Looking forward to the concerts, local vendors and iron-chef like competition between Rye and Decca.
  6. Mulch :)

All these events are family friendly, with kids zones and all FREE.
