WinterFest in Iroquois Park

Wednesday December 1, 2004

WINTERFEST'S HOLIDAY CHEER COMES TO IROQUOIS AMPHITHEATER ON DEC. 10-12

LOUISVILLE (December 1, 2004) – WinterFest, South Louisville’s most popular holiday celebration, will bring winter cheer to thousands of Iroquois Park visitors on December 10-12. For the first time, WinterFest is being staged in the historic Iroquois Amphitheater, near the intersection of New Cut Road and Kenwood Drive. This free annual event is sponsored by Louisville Metro, 15th District Metro Councilman George Melton, and Metro Parks.

WinterFest takes place each evening from 6-9 p.m. The celebration includes a beautiful display of more than 200,000 twinkling lights, Santa Claus, Santa’s elves working busily in their workshop, reindeer rides, storytelling, and live entertainment. The schedule includes the Squallis Puppeteers, Folsom Academy of the Arts, the Frozen Bottom Boys, Gary Brewer and His Kentucky Ramblers, and John Gage and EarthHeart.

“By moving WinterFest from the top of the park to the Iroquois Amphitheater, we’re celebrating the restoration of a facility that serves as the hub for arts in South Louisville,” said Melton. “We’re also improving the event by taking advantage of the great stage and sound system in the amphitheater. I think this year’s WinterFest will be the best yet!”

Information about WinterFest is available by calling the Iroquois Amphitheater at 502/368-5865, or online at www.iroquoisamphitheater.com.
