Week in Preview
Welcome to the Week in Preview where we highlight weekday family fun opportunities.
Here are my picks for weekday family fun!
You can watch horses work out on the track at Churchill Downs for FREE. Daily 7-10am, park in the white lot and enter through the paddock gate. Oaks and Derby contenders work out earliest, 7:30-7:45. This is FREE now through Wednesday April 28. You may bring food in with you April 17-April 23 for these morning workouts – coffee and donuts anyone?
Now you can listen to stories read by your favorite librarians right from your phone, 24/7—no internet required. Louisville Free Public Library’s TeleTales provides children and families a selection of recorded stories, poems, jokes, and more, on-demand wherever they are—at the store, stuck in the car, or relaxing at home. New content is added weekly, so call often.
Check out the Frazier History Museum, they are open Mondays and Thursday-Sunday, this week. They have one of the largest collections of toy soldiers and historical miniatures on permanent public display in the world plus so much more. Don’t forget their FREE membership to anyone in the 12-county area surrounding Louisville through October 31, 2021 — no strings attached!
Did you know that the Kentucky Science Center has a pop-up location at the Mall St. Matthews? Here are all of the details. It’s perfect for a safe indoor option for younger kids!
Don’t forget to wash your hands!
Get active! It’s easy to sit around when there seems to be less going on. But, really, there’s a lot to do that you just might not have discovered yet. Here are our ideas for active family fun.
Take a day trip to Brown County Indiana!
