Picks for Things to do this Weekend around Louisville - August 16,17,18

Please excuse me if this is rather brief and not typed with the same zest as usual. Something Ohio-river-valley-ish is messing with my sinuses and merely looking at the computer screen for more than 10 minutes makes me feel like my eyes are going to explode out of my head.

Regardless, the family fun must go on and here I am to tell you what you can do this weekend - I'll get the ibuprofen and other meds going to see if I can sustain some entertainment with the kids this weekend! Maybe I will through a neti pot pity party.

Friday
Outdoor dining is a great option for entertainment on Friday since the weather is just brilliant.  Check out our list of great family-friendly dining options that have wonderful spots for meals al fresco.

Friday is also a nice day to hit the KY State Fair!

Saturday
FOX (Families Outside X-ploring) - Starts at  9:00 AM and goes through Noon. It features: Checking out the Ohio River, a nice playground and pray ground, great picnic areas and wooded area.  They want you to hike, search for tracks, build forts, catch pond critters, get muddy, play in leaves, and take a break from technology - according to their website. Bring water bottles, a snack and dress for the weather. Families should meet in the upper parking lot of Riverview Park. Here's a video about it. It's $8/Family. Pre-Registration required; call 502.368.5404.

One of my favorite spots, Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve is having an awesome event to celebrate our pets and also butterflies.  Details are here, it's Saturday from 10am - 2pm and it's free (donations welcome, of course). Pet adoptions available, pet-friendly booths, and lunch treats will be available. Pets and four-legged friends are invited (on leash and bring scooper bags, please!). Also, there will be a butterfly expert present for some awesome info! Visitors will be able to view butterflies up close in their butterfly tent. Fun times!


Actor's Theatre Block Party is free and takes place Saturday from 1pm - 10pm. It's all to celebrate their 50th anniversary - with kids activities, performances, music, tours, food and more.  Enjoy this event downtown on Main St. between 3rd and 4th.

Sunday
A lot of kiddos are heading back to school next week. Take Sunday to take it easy, talk about going back to school and enjoy some quiet time at home together. I am sure there are events but sometimes, keeping it chill and simple is just as important as exploring! Maybe have a drive in movie night ,get crafty and make some ooey gooey stuff for everyone to play with or break out some board game and snacks and let the games begin!
