Fall is here! This page will focus on recommendations for weekend family fun. We encourage you to also explore other pages and post on our websites for festivals, free fun, hikes, outdoor movies, and more. 

Weekend fun around Louisville is back! Especially heading into fall, there are many things to do with your kids outside. It’s a wonderful time of year – minus the allergies, right? Some of your favorite events may not be happening this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find fun. We found many fun options for you.
