This Fall, Ben, Hailey and I are planning a trip to Louisville KY for a little Fall getaway.
I am so stoked to see somewhere new, but as I keep researching they have SO MANY events during this season!
I figured since I am already doing the research I’d put my favorites so you can take a look yourself.
Whether you’re visiting like us or a local you’ll find something. Trust me.
Jeffersontown Gaslight Festival Arts and Crafts– September 13th-15th, 2019
The Great Pumpkin Express- at the Kentucky Railway museum seems like it could not be even more adorable! I love the Charlie Brown theme, but my favorite is the kiddos get to pick their own “perfect pumpkin” to take home. This year it’s on Sep 28th and 29th so mark your calendars!
The World’s Largest Halloween Party– at the Lousiville Zoo. Not scary just sweet fun for kids 11 and younger from 4 pm- 10 pm. It looks like it runs several days in October so you definitely have a chance to check it out!
Louisville Halloween Parade and Festival – Saturday, Oct 5th. Named by the Travel Channel as one of the nation’s top ten Halloween Parades! Who knew right?!
Fright Light Halloween Party at Gheens Science Hall & Rauch Planetarium. Previous years was hosted every weekend. You can find their schedule here to see exact dates and times.
Halloween in Brown Park – Saturday, Oct 26th 11am-3pm. Huge trick or treat set up, with over 50 business set up to pass out candy, bouncy castles, crafts and more! A super fun day for the whole family!
Halloween on Hillcrest Avenue – An entire street decorates for Halloween the whole month of October. How cool is that?! This is definitely one I want to go see when we visit! On the 31st they also have an extravagant trick or treat event with zombies included.
Jack O’Lantern Stroll hosted by Dreams with Wings. Trick or treating, crafts, games, Louisville’s largest pumpkin pie by Heitzman’s (say whatttt?), and also 1,000 beautifully carved pumpkins lighting the night. Um yes, please?!
If you want some good ol’ homegrown pick yourself check out Roadside Farm Markers. Of course, they have the average apples and pumpkins during the month of October, but they also turnips, squash, and peas to name a few,
And last, but not least is the event that made Ben and I choose to visit here in October. The Louisville Jack O’Lantern Spectacular! It is named the best Halloween event in the Midwest. It is a walk through the park where you get to enjoy 5,000 different beautifully carved pumpkins! It’s open 7 days a week starting on October 8th and ends on November 3rd.
Have any of you ever visited some of these places? I’d love to hear from you in the comments!
