Things to do this weekend around Louisville - October 11,12,13

 photo IMG_0517_zpse7ee47ad.jpgIt's the middle of October and it's finally chilly out - do you have the Halloween decorations out? Have you carved a pumpkin?

Check our Halloween Post and Fall Festivals Post because we just can't include everything in this post and you won't want to miss anything!

Tune into this week's LouFamFun podcast on Louisville.am that comes out Friday morning - great interview with LocalView with 2 Friday funnies to start your weekend off with some laughter.

What's going on this weekend for your family?  Here are my picks!

Friday - It's the Baxter Ave. Halloween parade that starts at 7pm!  Dress up and go watch all of the crazy costumes parade by. Yes, some of them are a bit intense but my kids have never been afraid of them - however if you child doesn't like say....the Chick-fil-A Cow, I'd say stay away from this parade because it'll be crazy costumes galore.  Details here.

Maybe the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular at Iroquois Park is a better option for kiddos who might be afraid. It's starting tonight at 7pm and runs for a few weeks.  We are sending a writer so we can tell you all about it since there is a fee to enter.

Saturday - How about some theatre or music?  Stage One Family Theatre has public performances this weekend of "The House at Pooh Corner" at The Kentucky Center at 11am and 2pm.  The 11am show is a "sensory friendly performance" There's also performances on the 19th. Click here for full details and ticket info.

Derby Dinner Playhouse also has breakfast and lunch shows - we just published a review! It's "Miss Nelson Has a Field Day"

Head to the Garvin Gate Blues Festival during the day with the family starting at 2pm  at Oak St. and Garvin Pl. (also going on Friday night).  Its the largest free music street festival in Louisville! Click here to see their promotional poster.

Sunday - Go take a hike!  No no no, I'm not mad at you, there really is a hiking event.  It's called "Colors of Fall Hike" at Tom Sawyer Park. It's $3 per hiker, kids 3 and under are free and goes from 1-3pm.   You can explore the park with a guide, quality family time outside and you might just learn something too!

Have a fabuLOUs weekend!
