long weekend agenda

the long weekend is here at last!

if you're going to be in or around louisville and looking for something to do this holiday weekend

here is a list of a few things going on that have peaked my interest - and besides, the lakes around here are going to be far too crowded, and the water temps are still in the 60's - brr!

louisville bats:

will be in town all weekend - cheap seats are $7, beers are reasonable, and the milder-ish (70's) temps will be perfect for sitting outside without sweating buckets

strawberry festival in starlight indiana:

saturday -

enjoy lots of berries as well as craft booths and a "run for the berries" 5k in the morning

or go straight for the berries - head over to huber's winery and farm, instead, and pick your own berries or buy pre-picked (the website says their u-pick is approx may 28th - so definitely call before driving out there if your heart is set on picking - i would assume they'd be ready with the festival taking place this weekend)

beatersville car and bike show:

taking place sunday at phoenix hill tavern

we went for the first time last year - and it's pretty awesome (oh my goodness...i forgot how long my hair was last year - it's all piled up in pig tail knots)

lots of old beaters and rat rods as well as old motorcycles - owners who prefer to keep their cars looking rusted and old, instead of shiny, show room floor style.

there is also somewhat of a beauty pageant thing going on - women dressed as 50's styled pin-ups, but with lots of tattoos walking around collecting money - the woman with the most money, i believe, wins.

it's good people watching if cars aren't your thing, and because the streets are marked off, you can buy drinks and walk around while you see the sights.  there are also some booths.  and aside from some loud revving of engines, the event is family friendly

if you can't tell - i think it's one of the more interesting events that comes to louisville - so check it out for a few hours sunday if you get a chance

i've already mentioned this before, but monday is

the mayor's hike, bike, and paddle

it starts early monday morning with some free yoga, tai chi, and zumba as well as booths

all taking place or starting at the waterfront

it's a good way to kick off the morning if you've got cookout plans later in the day

while you're down there, pack a lunch to eat on the lawn - last time we walked around the waterfront we discovered instead of benches along the path, they have added swings!  lots of swings to sit and enjoy the weather - swings > benches any day of the week.

what plans are you looking forward to this weekend?  anything i may have forgot that's worth checking out?

have a great memorial day weekend, and we'll catch up on tuesday
