Things to do this weekend around Louisville October 19,20,21

Family Adventure Day
Grandmother Power at Ali Center

So, the weather is looking a little iffy for Friday but Saturday and Sunday look like they may be lovely fall days! I will make my recommendations accordingly……

Friday: (evening) This is the first day of the Bass Pro Shops Halloween events. This is a great rainy day option! Not that it isn’t fun on a sunny day but I much prefer enjoying the fall scenery when it’s 60 and sunny. Anyway, they have trick or treating, crafts, free photos and more. All of the information is HERE.
Saturday: The Mayor’s Healthy Hometown Fall Hike. This event sounds great to me! A crisp morning aqt Jefferson Memorial Forest! According to the website, it will be: Saturday, October 20, 10 am – 2:00 pm. Join Mayor Greg Fischer for a family-friendly fall exploration of Jefferson Memorial Forest. Held near the Forest’s Environmental Education Center, the event will offer a wide variety of activities to showcase all the Forest has to offer. Forest staff and volunteers will be on hand to introduce visitors to our native plant gardens, animal exhibits and children’s activities at the Nature Explore area. Climb the 52-ft Alpine Tower or take advantage of a canoeing demonstration on Mitchell Hill Lake. Free pumpkins & pumpkin decorating (while quantities last) and hay rides. Shack in the Back BBQ will have breakfast and lunch items for sale. A portion of food sales go to benefit the Forest, so please come with an appetite! Meets in the Horine Reservation.

Sunday: Since the season for cruising on the Belle of Louisville is coming to a close for 2012, how about an afternoon outing on the Ohio. After all, she JUST celebrated her 98th birthday, we need to show her some love! The Sunday sightseeing cruise is the more affordable option. I would recommend eating at home and heading out for the cruise, which begins boarding at 12:30. That will save you some money rather than the big mid-day meal. But, if you want to do it all up, they do offer the buffet and it’s full of serious down-home cooking.

Have a fabuLOUs weekend and enjoy the fall foliage! Also, it would be a wonderful weekend for Huber’s, Gallrein Farms, Foxhollow Farm or Deere Farm.
