Things to do this weekend around Louisville – February 8,9,10
If you haven’t heard, and that’s seemingly impossible, the Big Four Bridge is open for biking and pedestrians! Grab your sneakers and a bottle of water and go for a family stroll this weekend over the Ohio! This is such a wonderful thing for our city’s waterfront.
It’s “Pre-Valentine’s” Day weekend. I bet you will spend some time with your kids creating or picking out some cards to send into school. We are definitely doing that. I’ve been pinning some Valentine’s Day ideas for inspiration, we’ll see if I actually do any of these…….
There are some Valentine’s Day themed events around town. One in particular that I am going to recommend is shopping the unique stores in the Nulu area. They are having a Valentine’s Day Open House event from 10am-5pm on Saturday and it seems just about all of these businesses are offering a discount. For example, you can head to Muth’s Candy and get 20% off bagged Valentine’s Day candy then dine at Taco Punk for 10% off with a receipt from a Nulu retailer. The most exciting is a free chocolate from Ghyslain. They don’t mess around with their chocolate, you WANT a free chocolate from this place. And for the kids, the new WHY Louisville will give them a balloon. Fun times all around, read more here.
Also along the shopping theme, there’s a Hop & Shop in New Albany. The city of New Albany has been working hard to attract new businesses and they have a lot to offer. From 1-4pm on Saturday, you can head to downtown New Albany and hop on and off the trolley and shop at the local stores. They are offering a prize for visiting the businesses and giving out chocolates! The Facebook event is here.
And, if you are looking for something educational – there’s something fabuLOUs for families with tweens and teens. At the Louisville Nature Center from 10-11:30am on Saturday, you can learn about wild places at their family event featuring an indoor educational activity and then a nature walk. It is $3/person or $12/family and you need to register. Details here.
And, maybe try out a new restaurant. We have two helpful lists for you to choose from.
