Paint the Town Red at the Via Colori Street Festival October 21

Artists, vendors and people from all over the city will be at the Via Colori Street Painting Festival this October. More than 150 artists will work on painting the sidewalks. Not only is this event free, it’s pet-friendly, kid-friendly and a lot of fun.

This event is packed with activities and things to do and see. There will be live music, bounce houses, stuff for kids to do and costumed characters walking around. You’ll also see street performers and animal rescue resources, along with some other cool stuff. If you get hungry, there will be lots of food trucks and a full food court area.

And yes, street artists will be painting right on the sidewalks, working together to create a large-scale piece of artwork. It’s free to see it all but you will want money for the vendors and food, of course. The street festival is at the Big Four Bridge Lawn, right around 1101 River Road. That’s in the Butchertown area and this is a neighborhood worth seeing.

Exploring Around Butchertown

Between the Ohio River and Beargrass Creek, you will find a collection of lovely historic homes, most of which are built in brick, standing tall next to shady trees and wrought iron fences. This is Butchertown and this neighborhood was first built in the 1800s. You can still see the stamp of history in the buildings that remain here, but this is also a modern neighborhood. Butchertown has plenty of hip, trendy restaurants, cool shops and stuff to do.

The extreme park is here. There's also a soccer stadium, a distillery and lots more. Mostly, Butchertown has great places to live, amazing things to see and plenty of stuff to do. The homes in Butchertown still have their historic looks, but they also have plenty of modern upgrades and design. These homes, like the neighborhood, are a perfect blend of the cool and the historic. See them for yourself this October and see if Butchertown is the perfect place for you.
