I’ve seen threads of parents asking this question recently: Where can I rent a smaller space for a child’s 1st/2nd birthday party, or just to have a smaller gathering in a fairly affordable space?

Some ideas:

Fire departments-try Fern Creek Fire Dept-they are very active in the community (502) 239-7075. Also other suggestions by parents are St. Matthews Fire Department, McMahan Fire Department and Jeffersontown Fire Department. Some fire departments are free and will bring a fire truck to your house, give you party hats and goodie bags. Call around!
