Things to do this weekend: August 17-18

Matt Milosevich WLKYHere, you can find your weekend family fun and weekend events around Louisville! Most kids are back to school but that doesn’t mean the fun has to end! Also, keep an eye on this page – it’s where we will be posting our Labor Day Weekend family fun ideas. 

Check out our $5 Fridays group on Facebook if you would like a fun and easy way to support local teachers.

Here are some picks for great family fun this weekend. It’s still hot and the local spraygrounds and splash pads are a great place to cool off!

Let’s see if we can keep the showers away……………..


Head to the KFC Yum! Center for Corteo – a special Cirque du Soleil show that families will love. They have a 7:30pm show on Friday but also have shows (including matinees) over the weekend. Click here for tickets. Use code Corteo15 to save 15%


Fort Knox is having a big party! Easton Corbin will be performing a free concert and everyone is invited because it’s to celebrate Fort Knox’s centennial. Be at Brooks Field by 7pm, bring chairs/blankets and lots of friends. The Fort Knox Army Post is open to the public. Stop by the Visitors Center during regular business hours, show state ID and receive a one year visitor’s pass. Event details here.



Go apple picking! Like for all u-pick places, checking ahead that their ripening schedule matches your cravings is very important. Here’s a list of places to try out. We love Hidden Hollow and Huber’s Orchard. Get your recipes ready – kids always pick a TON of apples!

As always, don’t forget to check out our events calendar!
