Central Park in Old Louisville is already a beautiful place in the city but this weekend it will once again show why it’s a relaxing and enjoyable place for the neighborhoods surrounding it.
Councilman David James (D-6) and Kentucky Shakespeare are hosting “Saturday in the Park” this weekend bringing the arts and entertaining activities to Central Park.
“The residents of Old Louisville will have the chance to see Central Park in a new light with music, movies, theatre and more,” says James. “Our goal: fun and relaxation for everyone while at the same time highlighting many of our local artists.”
“Saturday in the Park” kicks off at 12:00 pm and runs until 10:00 pm. There will be a wide range of free events including:
· Interactive Children’s Theater featuring “Romeo and Juliet” (2:00 – 3:00 pm) and “Boy Meets Girl meets Shakespeare” (4:00 – 5:00 pm).
· Live music from Steve Cooley, Johnny Berry (12:00 – 2:00 pm), Kim Coleman (3:00 pm) and the Louisville Symphonic (5:00 – 6:30 pm)
· Movies on the Big Screen: Gnomeo & Juliet (starting at 7:00 pm) and Singing in the Rain (immediately following)
· Tennis clinic for all ages (12:00 – 4:00 pm)
· Inflatable Games and pumpkin painting (all day)
· Festival of Trees and Tree Climbing Competition (11:00 am – 4:00 pm)
All of these events are free and there will be food and refreshments available for purchase. Several area restaurants will offer special prices during the event and a trolley will shuttle people throughout the neighborhood to Central Park.
“I hope everyone will take the time to come out and visit Central Park if you haven’t been by recently. Come enter the beauty of the park in this fall season and see some wonderful entertainment.”
