Take Mom to the Mother’s Day 5k at Waterfront Park May 8
May is a beautiful month to visit Waterfront Park, one of Louisville’s favorite attractions. Take Mom to the waterfront for the Mother’s Day 5k, and spend some time together in downtown Louisville. Mom will get some goodies just for being there, and mom/daughters can bring their own kids with them, too. There will be stuff to keep kids and moms of all ages busy this Mother’s Day.
Mom’s Day at the River
At the Mother’s Day 5k, every mom gets a rose. And for everyone who crosses the finish line of the 5k, there will be chocolate cake pops waiting. After completing a 5k, everyone deserves a little treat.
The events begin at the 8 am with the packet pick-up, which you’ll need to join the 5k. The Kids Dash starts at 8:15 am, and the 5k will begin at 8:30. At 10:20 am, the course closes. All kids 8 years and under are welcome to join the Kids Dash, a 100-meter face. Every finisher will get a ribbon after crossing the finish line.
You’ll find parking for Waterfront Park at 1201 River Road. Runners and walkers are both welcome, and there is a category for seniors over the age of 65. After all, this is a fun Mother’s Day event.
Downtown Louisville is famous for its waterfront, its culture, its food and its shopping. There’s a lot to see and do in this part of the city, but there’s a lot of great stuff in the neighborhood right outside the downtown area, too. Just three miles from downtown Louisville, you’ll find Germantown. If you’re looking for something else fun to do on Mother’s Day, go explore this Louisville neighborhood and see the unique story it has to tell.
Mom’s Day Out in Germantown
Germantown is one of the city's oldest neighborhoods. These streets are packed with history, not to mention shotgun houses that were popular at the turn of the century. But they say that everything old is new again, and there's a youthful spirit in Germantown that attracts people from all over Louisville. The historic buildings here have been preserved and renovated over the years. Now, shotgun houses are hip again and Germantown is one of the trendiest Louisville neighborhoods.
Today, the neighborhood is home to antique shops, restaurants and one-of-a-kind places to shop. It's a little bit of the spirit of downtown Louisville, but with the community spirit many homeowners want. Germantown has one of Louisville's oldest neighborhood associations.
See how history is still being made in Germantown today, and take Mom with you while you explore the renovated homes, the interesting shops and the amazing look and feel of this unique neighborhood.
