Summer events family fun louisville

Summer events are not abundant for 2020. However, if you are looking for summer events and family fun during June, July & August in Louisville, we have information here that will help you! Summer is a great time to get out and enjoy Louisville and the surrounding areas. 
 
This year will look a little different. Summer camps, pools, playgrounds – we won’t be heading to those any time soon. But, what can you do to make your summer memorable with your kids? And, we want to keep kids active and busy even without many summer events. There are so many options for families from hiking to skipping rocks in creeks to day trips. 
 
Below we provide ideas to give your family a place to look when you wake up in the morning and say “What are we going to do today?!”
