The Bardstown-Baxter Avenue Corridor is a unique stretch of road in Metro Louisville because of its quaint shops, restaurants and churches. On Saturday, December 6th, the Corridor will continue a tradition begun in 1985, with the 23rd Annual Bardstown Road Aglow.

“There are many holiday traditions throughout Metro Louisville and the Bardstown Road Aglow is something everyone should experience,” says Councilman Tom Owen (D-8). “There is just something relaxing when you stroll through decorations and holiday lights.”

For more than three miles along the Corridor, many businesses and restaurants will create the feel of the season. If you do not wish to walk a free trolley will be available going up and down the corridor taking you to any destination.

“In days gone by you could hear the music of carolers, or a brass band,” says Owen. “The Aglow will provide music from the Louisville Pipe Band and there will also be street performers to watch and enjoy.”

The Bardstown Road Aglow also features a liver Nativity at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, ornament making for children at Gilda’s Club and pictures with Santa at Keller Williams Wonderland at Bearno’s.

The Bardstown Road Aglow will be held from dusk to 10:00pm.

“I applaud the many businesses and neighborhood associations that come together at this special time of year,” says Owen. “In these tough economic times, it would be easy to forgo the expense of a community event. But a holiday tradition is being kept alive for all of us to enjoy.”
