Our lovely city has a lot to offer this long holiday weekend with events for all ages happening around Louisville.  Here are just a few highlights to keep you entertained in your downtime…

Get your spook on this Friday night at the 10th annual Louisville Zombie Attack. Louisvillians declare this to be the oldest and largest Zombie walk in the world! Enjoy drink specials, live music and break out your most creepy ensemble for the costume contest. With a pre-party at The Backdoor and two convenient starting points (Eastern Pkwy & Bardstown Rd or the Mid City Mall parking lot) and a final stop at The Highlands Tap Room, it is sure to be ghoulish good time. If you don’t get your pre-Halloween fill on Friday night at the Zombie Walk, embark over to the Louisville Palace for the horror film series and enjoy the classic spooky cinema flicks with the convenience of three different screening times.

If you are looking for something a little more laid back, you may want to drop by the VinylFest happening this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Crowne Plaza Louisville Airport Hotel. Get your groove on to live music while getting your vinyls appraised or searching for your favorite records with featured guests Steve Katz of Blood, Sweat and Tears, The Violet Knifes and Ken Kelly.

Wanting to travel but can’t make it out of town for the Labor Day weekend. No worries because Louisville’s 12th annual WorldFest is here at the Belvedere and it emulates everything international. Feast on yummy food from more than 30 vendors and take in the tunes from nearly 100 bands/performers while exploring almost 150 booths. Four days of amusement with hands-on activities for children and adults of all ages.

Get your day started early this coming Sunday morning with the 31st Annual Pioneer 5K at Seneca Park. Beginning at 8am, whether you are a walker or a runner, people of all ages can get moving to benefit The Saint Nick Fund. Registration is available on Facebook and numerous prizes will be given out including two grand prizes valued at $500 each! 
Make a toast to another great Louisville summer in the books at the Kentucky Bluegrass & Bourbon Experience going on this Saturday and Sunday at the Louisville Water Tower. Sample the most popular local bourbons and get down to a little bluegrass music and discover why the Commonwealth is the Bourbon capitol. If this event peaks your Bourbon interest, you may also enjoy the Bourbon in the Kitchen event at Moonshine University on Sunday evening at 6pm. Renowned culinary artist, Sullivan University professor and author, Albert Schmid, will be teaching a cooking class focusing on Bourbon dishes and coupling bourbon with food.
Nothing says the beginning of Fall like a little Football. The Louisville Cards will take on the Miami Hurricanes this Labor Day at 8pm at Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium. The Louisville Bats will also be playing Indianapolis on Sunday at 1pm at Louisville Slugger Field for a full family fun day of sports. Whatever event captures your attention this holiday weekend, I hope you have a safe, fun and happy Labor Day!
