Go to the Louisville Kids Fair March 8 and 9
Louisville kids of all ages are invited to come to the annual Louisville Kids Fair. There’s so much going on at the fair, two days almost isn’t enough to hold it all.
The Kids Fair is exactly that: an event made for kids. Visit the Kent Family Magic Circus to see a little bit of everything. This circus also has theater and vaudeville-like performances in addition to the petting zoo. Kids can enjoy actual pony rides at the circus. If real animals are too scary or too smelly, go to the bouncy pony area.
Well-known kids characters will be at the event. Curious George has already sent in his RSVP, and Cailou will be there to entertain children of all ages. Buddy from Dinosaur Trail will also attend.
There are several hands-on activities that keep children engaged. Mini-golf, free face painting, an obstacle course and lots of different rides will be set up as well. There’s a rock wall, a slide, a merry go ride, and lots more.
Parents, you won’t be bored, either. There will be booths set up for shopping. Local booths will also be set up so you can meet Louisville vendors and get to know more about Louisville businesses. Went to the Kids Fair last year? You’ll want to come again this year. This year’s event is bigger and better, with even more entertainment for kids and adults.
Tickets cost $10 for adults and children over 13, $8 for kids aged 2 to 12. Kids under 2 are admitted for free. A portion of the ticket sales will go to the WHAS Crusade for Children. The fair is open March 8 from 9 am to 7 pm, and March 9 from 11 am to 7 pm.
You’ll find the fair at the Kentucky International Convention Center in downtown Louisville, at 221 S. 4th Street. Parking on the street is free on the weekends, so don’t let that stop you from going to the fair. The Convention Center is close to a lot of other Louisville attractions, including KFC Yum! Center, Louisville Slugger Museum and the Waterfront.
The Convention Center is close to another Louisville attraction: the Thomas Edison House. This is a great place to take kids as well. Edison once lived in Butchertown, an historic Louisville neighborhood that is quickly becoming one of the trendiest places in the city to live. The historic homes in Butchertown, including Thomas Edison’s house, make the neighborhood well worth a visit. Kids and adults of all ages will find plenty of fun stuff to do downtown, especially if you go to the Louisville Kids Fair this year.
