Finally, a little bit of cool weather after this phase of summer during fall. Here are our picks for family fun this weekend. Get outside!


Looks like an excellent evening for a trip to “The World’s Largest Halloween Party” at the Louisville Zoo. This is an event that never gets old and is fun for the entire family. You can enter between 5pm and 8:30pm. Trick or treating is for kids ages 11 and under and this is a major fundraiser for the zoo programs!

Looking for something a little different? The Northeast Y is hosting a Halloween-themed swim from 6-8pm for the family and it’s free for members, $5 for non-members. Register in advance. They are showing “The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.”


What a day to hit the pumpkin patches and local farms. Check out our list here.

Craving festival fun on a gorgeous day? Head to the Southwest Community Festival!  It’s 10am – 4pm at Sun Valley Park featuring entertainment by the Louisville Crashers and a car show. $5 parking fee, free admission.          

It’s also the Foxhollow Farm Fall Festival, 10am -6pm. With the weather being near perfection, plan for large crowds and save time by getting tickets online in advance by 10/12. 


Take your kids back into your childhood for a showing of the “Goonies” at The Louisville Palace on Sunday. It’s at 2pm, what a great location for a movie! Click here to see the Common Sense media info about this movie to decide if it is right for your family.
