With weather warm and hopefully shower-free in Louisville this Memorial Day weekend, you may be deciding whether to barbeque with the family or hit one of the many events on the schedule for the weekend. Memorial Day is a time for remembering the contributions of those who have died for our country, but also a time to relax and reminisce. Here are a few options if you are looking for different ways to remember the past.
Abbeyroad on the River, the classic Beatle show, is now in Louisville for the 10th year. The five day festival started on May 26, but has two good days left to enjoy a host of visiting bands who have captured the Beatles sound. Based at the Galt House and Belvedere Festival Park, the event will offer some great sound in honor of John Lennon's 70th birthday later this year, plus loads memorabilia and history. There are four indoor stages, plus covered outdoor stages, so it is a rain-or-shine event. Memorial Day weekend is a time for remembering, so why not remember some music of times past that still touches us today?
If Reggae music is your thing, the Kentucky Reggae Festival through May 30 at the Water Tower will offer the island sound you like to chill to, along with Jamaican foods for sale and a Caribbean market to browse In Louisville, it's all about the experience. Bands like Caribbean Conspiracy , Yard Squad, Everton Blender, and Dem Reggae are performing for two or three hours stints, so you can enjoy the music long with the whole Caribbean experience.
Cruising on the Belle of Louisville is a nice relaxing way to spend the early afternoon on Memorial Day. You can join the noon cruise for a buffet picnic lunch or just the site seeing , and be back early enough to enjoy a leisurely afternoon of recreation or other events in Waterfront Park or downtown Louisville. A cruise on the Belle or the other vessel the Sprit of Jefferson are a wonderful way to think back on how important the river was to the development of modern Louisville.
If your idea of holiday fun is bargain hunting at flea markets, Kentucky Flea Market Memorial Day Spectacular is for you. You may be looking for something to add to your collection or you may believe that buying good used clothes, tools, furniture, and appliances offers good value and is an environmentally sound practice. Why increase demand for products that use scarce resources to produce when gently used merchandise could meet your needs? Visit someone else's memory lane at the Kentucky Expo Center West Wing and bring home the bargains.
