Take the Family to See the Cancer Awareness Show in Hillview May 21
Every member of the family will have fun in Hillview on May at the Cancer Awareness Show, and it all helps to benefit a good cause. There’s something here for everyone: arts and crafts, cars, motorcycles, trucks, even model trains. In other words, everyone has a chance to get “wowed” here, and you’ll be having so much fun you’ll forget that you’re doing a good deed at the same time.
Driving Around in Hillview
This family-friendly event is really three different shows, and there’s something for every interest. The model train show features three different layouts in different sizes. The arts and crafts show will be chock-full of interesting local art. The car, truck, motorcycle and motor car show is a true celebration of everything on wheels that any gearhead is sure to love.
Take the kids to see the fire safety house, and take a stroll through the vendor booths to do a little light browsing while you’re here. There will be plenty of food from local vendors. While you walk around, take the chance to enter prize and cash raffles.
The show lasts from 11 am to 5 pm at the Hillview Community Center. Be there at 298 Prairie Drive to enjoy the entire event. The proceeds from the event will go to programs provided by the James Graham Brown Cancer Center at the University of Louisville. You’re welcome to bring some canned goods if you like to contribute to the food drive.
Stop to Soak in Hillview
Hillview is the perfect place to be this May if you enjoy vehicles with wheels, but this is a perfect neighborhood to stop and take a break, too. Hillview is south of downtown Louisville and feels as though it's a whole world away. This neighborhood is surrounded by nature on all sides, but has the manicured look of any city subdivision. The Jefferson Memorial Forest is a short drive from Hillview on one side, while it's a quick trip to McNeely Lake Park on the other side of the neighborhood. You'll see lots of groves of trees and natural water in and around Hillview, the stuff of any adventurer's or outdoorsman's dreams.
But Hillview is really a place for families. There are schools and restaurants in Hillview that families love. This community is full of neat brick homes settled on lots with big, mature shade trees. Hillview was primarily built during the 1950s and '60s, and still has that picturesque family neighborhood look that you used to see on evening TV.
Stop to soak in this picture-perfect neighborhood this May, and you may choose to keep having fun in this part of Louisville for a long time to come.
