Shop, Eat and Celebrate at the Buy Local Fair May 22
Go see some of the best of Louisville at the Buy Local Fair on May 22. Water Tower Park will be full of fun stuff to do, see, buy and taste all day long, and you'll have lots of opportunities to meet some of the local business owners and artists that help make Louisville unique.
Buy Local at the Fair
The Buy Local Fair is all about Louisville businesses and residents. Many area businesses will have booths set up with goods to sell. Local artisans and crafters will have handmade items for sale as well. Buy some fresh produce from a local farmer before you watch the cooking contest. Dance to the live music in the afternoon. And if you get thirsty, stop by the craft beer tent.
Kids will love the aerial circus performers. Actually, everyone in the family will probably be awed by what these acrobats can do. Take the kids to the children’s area so they can see stuff that's just for them.
The Fair is at Louisville Water Tower Park, a beautiful historic site dating to the 1860s. The park is home to an ornate pumping station and water tower that's made to be as pretty as it is practical. The Water Works Museum is full of interesting stuff to see. It's so beautiful, weddings and parties are held here throughout the year. Go see the fair and the park for free. Parking costs $5 per car.
Water Tower Park is located along the banks of the Ohio. Just blocks away from the park, you'll find the Rolling Fields neighborhood. Even if you aren't looking for a new place to live, you might change your mind about that after you spend enough time here.
Explore the Rolling Fields Near the River
Rolling Fields is next to the Louisville Country Club, and the name truly fits. You'll see lots of big, green lawns in Rolling Fields. Many of the lots here are large to accommodate the big homes. Houses here have a contemporary country look to them. Rolling Fields is a quiet, shady neighborhood next to the country club, surrounded by natural beauty. That's what gives this community that out-in-the-country look. You'll feel like the tall glass buildings of downtown Louisville are far away, but Rolling Fields is just a quick trip down the river from the heart of the city.
The Crescent Hill Golf Course is just across from Rolling Fields on the other side of the neighborhood. In every direction from Rolling Fields, you'll find beautiful homes and fun stuff to explore. Go see the city's other beautiful waterfront area this May, and go see how fun it is to buy local.
