Labor Day line up
Louisville’s Annual Labor Day Parade and Fall Festival (September 2) is only a month away, and with recent hot temperatures, the Beach Party theme is perfect!
Now in its 84th year, the parade will feature creative entries from throughout the Louisville community and everyone is welcome to attend. Starting at East Lafayette Street, the parade will make its way down Main Street starting at 10 am.
Commenting, Mayor Bob Muckle said:
“The Labor Day celebration is such a big part of the Louisville community. We’ve been busy preparing for the festivities and we look forward to seeing the great parade entries and pet parade costumes that we’ve come to expect each year.
“In addition to the parade, there is so much to do and see at the Fall Festival in Memory Square Park. It’s a great example of our vibrant city with the best small town atmosphere.”
Labor Day weekend (August 30 – September 2) in Louisville also includes the Children’s Pet Parade, Senior Dinner, a Pancake Breakfast, live music, the Homemade Pie Contest, Bocce Tournament, Pints in the Park, the National Fine Arts Show, and much more.
Through the help of Eco-Cycle, the Senior Dinner and Fall Festival are “Zero Waste” events where vendors must use items that are either compostable or locally recyclable.
