Kentucky Art Car Weekend and First Friday Trolley Hop By Jeanette

Since seeing Kentucky Art Car Weekend advertised last year, I have been excited to take the family to see the art cars. It just so happened to fall on the First Friday Trolley Hop. So we ventured out on Friday night to downtown. After battling traffic on 64W, we easily found a parking spot within a short walk to the free event to view the art cars. The cars varied from a tiki one to a motorcycle with comics on it. My favorite was the Starry Night van. I think my oldest son enjoyed seeing the fishes move on one car. It was fun to see all the different cars. It makes think we could turn my son’s cozy coupe into an art car to enter in next year.


Although we did not ride the free trolley, we enjoyed seeing the activities going on downtown because of the First Friday Trolley Hop. We enjoyed some homemade ice cream, only later to pass a gelato stand that would have been good too. The Louisville Science Center had an outdoor bubble exhibit showing how to make art with blowing different colored bubbles on paper along with some other hands on experiments. And for the adults there was a wine tasting along the route as well. It was an enjoyable evening spent with the family and would be interested in checking it out again next month. The website for First Friday Trolley Hop summarizes the different events going on during the hop.
