Celebrate Independence Day in Crescent Hill July 4
For America’s birthday, the historic Peterson-Dumesnil House in Crescent Hill is the place you want to be. The grounds of the house will be set up for a huge party filled with music, food, shopping, even places for the kids and the pets. Go see it all, and celebrate the 4th of July in Crescent Hill.
Happy Birthday, USA!
Kentucky is America’s 15th state, so Louisville has a pretty long history. The Peterson-Dumesil House is a beautiful example of how Louisville has worked to preserve its history over the centuries. You’ll find it at 301 S. Peterson Avenue in Crescent Hill. There’s free parking at the nearby Seminary on Grinstead Drive. Leave your car and hop on the free trolley, which will be running from 1 pm to 10 pm. The party officially kicks off at 10 am.
There will be nearly 100 artist booths filled with amazing stuff to see and buy, not to mention live music and entertainment all day. Take the kids to the children’s fun zone, and bring your pet to enter into the pet contest. The children's fun zone has bouncy inflatables, face painting, remote control cars and lots of other interactive stuff.
The food court is full of goodies, including a dedicated cake booth. Visit the history display before you leave. The celebration officially ends with a dazzling fireworks show at 10 pm. When you’re here, you’ll see it’s always a good day to visit Crescent Hill.
Celebrating Crescent Hill
Crescent Hill is known to many in Louisville as a fun, funky community filled with local businesses, great little eateries and lots of amazing shops filled with original and hard-to-find items. Frankfort Avenue, the main hub of Crescent Hill, is a great place to people-watch or go shopping. Visit the Crescent Hill golf course or the nearby aquatic center if you want to enjoy a day outdoors.
People have been living in Crescent Hill since before the Civil War, and this neighborhood still carries the stamp of history. You’ll find many Victorian-era homes here, along with other grand homes built in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The beautiful architectural details of days gone by are still present on the outside, but inside these homes have been updated to keep up with the times. That means you'll get to enjoy all the modern conveniences you'd find in a much newer home, but you still get all the craftsmanship and detail found in those great historic homes.
Go celebrate America’s birthday in Crescent Hill July 4, and go see more of the amazing Crescent Hill neighborhood. Maybe next year, you’ll be living in Crescent Hill when America celebrates its birthday again.
