First Friday Art Walk at the Museum and Parade of Lights Open House

First Friday Art Walk

The Museum will open its doors from 5:00 to 8:30 PM for the Art Walk and Parade of Lights.

The Museum will continue the Louisville holiday tradition of handing out sacks of treats to children. For decades, from the 1920s to the 1980s, Louisville community organizations sponsored these sacks that typically each contained an orange, nuts in the shell, and pieces of ribbon candy. For many Louisville children, receiving these treat sacks was a large part of their holiday experience. During the Depression, the sacks were even the main gifts for children in some families. We thank the Louisville History Foundation for sponsoring the treat bags again this year and for continuing the tradition. 

Stop by the Museum to discover hidden and interesting aspects of Louisville history and to tour the historic buildings on the Museum campus at 1001 Main during the First Friday Art Walks!
