Celebrate at the Back to School Bash August 20
Help the kids get into the back to school spirit, with the Louisville Metro Parks Back to School Bash. Kids can enjoy the free activities and the last of the summer sunshine while they get some free school supplies, too. Go enjoy the sun with the whole family, and take a deep breath. They’re going back to school at last.
Back to School Bash
The Back to School Bash is open for kids from age K through 12, and all the activities at the park are free for them all afternoon. All kids will get free notepads and pencils while supplies last, so show up early for some free school supplies.
This event is sponsored by the Louisville Metro Parks Association at Petersburg Park, 5008 East Indian Trail. The park has its own community center, a large amphitheater, ballfields, basketball courts, tennis courts, even a playground and sprayground area that kids will love.
See All Sides of Okolona
The park is just down the road from a favorite destination in the area: Jefferson Mall. Known to locals as J-Mall, this is a large shopping complex that's surrounded by more stores and strip malls. Okolona is known for the shopping, and that means it's known for having plenty of restaurants, too. After all, shopping can be pretty wearying and you will need to refuel. You can find all sorts of ways to keep busy in the Okolona area, whether you want to play golf or spend an air-conditioned afternoon in a movie theater.
But there's another side to Okolona that you may not see unless you venture away from the shops, the food and the entertainment. You'll find it among the cool, quiet lawns where big ranch houses spread out under the shade. It's the community pride and family-friendly spirit of Okolona, and you'll see it in the homes here. Find a large traditional home on a hill, look for a big brick ranch with lots of extra space, or settle into a cozy bungalow close to all that great shopping. When you see Okolona, you're going to start seeing all sorts of new possibilities.
