For Immediate release:
America will be 231 years old when the Fourth of July rolls around this year and the Crescent Hill Community of Louisville will once again throw a day long birthday party.
“It is a special holiday tradition everyone looks forward to,” says Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh (D) 9. “I hope if you have never had the chance to come see Crescent Hill, this is a chance to see why this community is so special.”
The 24th Annual Crescent Hill Fourth of July celebration will kick off with a 5k Fun Run & Walk at 8:30am, a bike ride beginning at 9:00am and the Car Parade beginning at 11:30 am.
The celebration is centered at the Peterson–Dumesnil House, 301 South Peterson Avenue.
“The nice thing about this event is there are plenty of things to do,” says Ward-Pugh. “But the most important thing is to have fun and take advantage of a wide range of activities.”
The celebration also includes arts and crafts, a food court, pet show, and field games for kids, a watermelon eating contest, a cake and pie competition, a silent auction ending the day of celebration with fireworks.
“There will also be a chance to talk to a politician or two about anything going on in the area,” says Ward-Pugh. “My office will be among many booths on hand where you can find out about various groups that make Louisville special and unique.”
Groups who will be hosting booths this year include the Olmstead Parks Conservancy, the Louisville Orchestra, United Crescent Hill Ministries, the Frazier International History Museum, Montessori School of Louisville, the Girl Scouts and Heartland Music Together.
“It is my hope that everyone will come out in their red, white and blue and walk around the celebration,” says Ward-Pugh. “You will meet some great people and get a better understanding of how the Crescent Hill Community Council has worked to make this celebration special.”
