Church Summer Picnics in and around Louisville: May-August 2013

Church Summer Picnics, you say you’ve never been?! There is so much fun to be had!

These Picnics provide a little of everything - great food, music, arts and crafts, games, casino nights, beer tents, bounce houses, and rides (*depending on the location). Whether just grabbing a bite to eat at a fried-chicken-dinner night, or spending some time at the game tents trying to win a houseplant, there is a little something for everyone in the family.

Just don’t forget your change at home to play games. As far as costs, they do vary. Picnics are free to enter; otherwise it depends on whether you purchase tickets/arm bands for rides, eat a meal, or hit up the food vendors. Generally games are cheap: nickels, dimes, and quarters, but can be up to a dollar for “fun” games for the kids. Picnics normally run on Fridays & Saturdays, some being Saturday only, and a few open up the rides for a special “ride night” on Thursdays.
