Southern Living listed Louisville as one of the top five cities for a Southern Christmas! A few events caught my eye:
Light up Lake Forest: 1200 homeowners light up houses and lawns beginning the first week in December about 25 minutes from the city. www.lakeforestky.com
Sleigh Rides in a horse drawn carriage with Santa @ The Summit from 12-5pm December 5-6, 12-13, and 18-20.
Somehow, I got on the mailing list for Kentucky Magazine. I almost threw it away but perused the pages for a few minutes and found it actually had some great articles! They listed some of their favorite events for the season around the state. A few more that caught my eye:
Christmas in the Park in Elizabethtown, KY from November 26-Jan 1. More than 100 holiday light displays (over 1 million lights) on Freeman Lake. www.touretown.com
Winter Wonderland in Owensboro, KY from November 27-Jan 1. This really sounds like the best one around...though it's 2 hours from Louisville! They have tons of holiday happenings including the tri-state's largest outdoor skating rink. Free ice skating on Mondays! www.riverparkcenter.org
Southern Lights 2009 in Lexington, KY from November 20- December 31. A dazzling array of lights through the Kentucky Horse Park complete with a petting zoo, pony and camel rides and craft vendors. www.southernlightsky.org
Grateful for a season to particularly ponder the coming of Jesus, the light of the world.
