There is always a ton of great events going on, but sometimes you just need some help finding them. Lucky for you, we’re here to help. We’ve posted links to several event calendars on our events page to keep you up-to-date on local events. But we also wanted to highlight our top picks, because we’re cool like that.
Friday (8/24) - Rock Around the Louisville Clock: After undergoing an extensive renovation, the city is celebrating the return of the historic Louisville Clock to downtown. The mayor will kick off the festivities at 5 pm at Theatre Square.
Saturday (8/25) - 6th Annual Hike for Hosparus: 5K run and family hike that benefits the Hosparus Kourageous Kids pediatric program. Kick start your Saturday will a fun activity and support a great cause!
Sunday (8/26) – Louisville Ford Ironman: Let’s face it, most of us will never compete in the Ironman, but that doesn’t stop us from supporting those that do. Sign up as a volunteer or simply cheer the athletes on as they pass by or at the Fourth Street Live finish line. Also be aware of road closures, so you don’t get stuck in a traffic jam.
Thursday (8/16) – Sunday (8/26) – Kentucky State Fair: Ok, so we’ll be honest. We’ve never attended the state fair, but regretted not going every single year. We’ve seen far too many posts and pictures showcasing the wide variety of people, activities, and food to let yet another year pass us by.
