Things to do this weekend around Louisville - September 20,21,22

We are headed to Disney on Ice at the Yum Center this weekend, we love it! We aren't planning a Disney vacation for a while so it's super fun to see the characters come to us - cheaper than airfare and hotel!  Our weekend will round out with two YMCA soccer games and fun with friends.

Be sure to check out our Halloween post and our Fall Festivals post each weekend too because there's so much there, I can't list it all here!

It was very difficult to narrow down some events for your family this weekend, but here are my picks:

Friday 
Start the weekend off with some thrills at the Fairdale Community Fair  (more event details here, runs Fri and Sat) or the Crestwood Festival. Both will fill your bellies with cotton candy goodness and your ears with the screams and squeals!

Looking for a really unique show? The Louisville Magic Club is putting on It's Magic! at the Ursuline Arts Center. Thanks to Steve-o the Magician for this great tip. Adults $10 Children (12 and under) $5 Doors open at 6:00. Close-up performers will entertain early arrivals. lmcmagic.com for ticket info.

Saturday 
Family Canoe Day at Tom Wallace Lake 10:00 - 2:00 PM Learn the basics of canoeing and spend some time on the lake practicing. All equipment (canoe, paddles, and personal flotation devices) is provided. This program is suitable for ages 5 and to adult. Activities Free; $10.00 canoe rental

Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve has a new event - Creatures of the Night starting at 6:30 p.m. "James Kiser and Tony Evans, biologists, will stay for the evening to introduce visitors to creatures of the night. They will set up a mist net to capture and band bats on the nature preserve grounds. What other creatures are active during the night? Come and learn! Maybe we will see some owls!" Fees are: Members $3; Non-members $5; Under 2 years Free

Sunday
I so wish I could go to this!!!   "100 Years On the Ohio: A Living Timeline of Louisville's First Century" from 10 am to 5 pm (Saturday also) at Farnsely-Moremen Landing.  Historical re-enactors demonstrating the tools, weaponry, clothing, pastimes and cooking of each period and an 1860s-style base ball game between the Cincinnati Red Stockings and the Cincinnati Buckeyes on Sunday afternoon! $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and $3 for children. Family Rate is $15 (2 adults with up to 3 children under 18)
