Go to the Winter Ceili at the Mellwood Arts Center February 24
No, it’s not a chili cook-off. It’s a Winter Ceili, a fun party full of music, food, dancing and socializing. Isn’t that the best way to get warm on a winter’s night?
The McClanahan Winter Ceili
The Winter Ceili is a unique cultural event full of traditional entertainment. The Louisville Pipe Band will play, as will the Ladies of Longford. Traditional Irish dance performances will dazzle you, and there will be ceili calling later in the evening. There’s even a silent auction, so you can do a little shopping while you’re here.
All proceeds from this event go to the McClanahan School Parents Association. This nonprofit ground helps support dancers in the community and the Louisville Feis, a traditional arts and culture festival. Dinner will be provided by Molly Malone’s, a famous Irish Pub in Louisville. The party begins at 6 pm at the Mellwood Arts Center. Tickets cost $30 for adults 13 and up and $5 for kids aged 12 and under.
Look for the Mellwood Arts Center at 1860 Mellwood Avenue in Clifton Heights. It’s just a few blocks outside the Clifton neighborhood. This community has an interesting story to tell. Dive around here a little while, and you’ll see that story unfold.
