Fishing with the Experts
The tropical fish auction is the final day for the ACA’s annual convention. The ACA, American Cichlid Association, is all about the rarest fish. The auction itself is only for cichlid and catfish species, and will include rare fish that aren’t even available at retail stores.
Why does the auction take so many hours? Because there are hundreds of bags of fish to sell. This auction is one of the largest of its kind in the entire country, and fish experts and sellers from all over the nation will be in attendance. This is the biggest fish auction Louisville has seen since 1992, so now’s your chance to swim among the biggest fish experts. Registration begins at 8 am.
A Day at the Crowne
The Crowne Plaza is located near the Louisville Airport Expo Center, at 830 Phillips Lane. This hotel is by the airport, but not too far away is Southern Parkway and the famous Churchill Downs. This is an historic section of Louisville where you can still see some of the remnants of the city's earliest days.
The neighborhood is known as Wyandotte or Oakdale, part of the larger community known as South Louisville. This pretty community is marked by its cozy homes. The neighborhood sprang to life around 1890, shortly after nearby Iroquois Park opened. People wanted to live in the area, and this created a housing craze that turned South Louisville intro a thriving section of the city. The original name was Oakdale, and though it was later changed to Wyandotte in the 1970s some still call it by its first name.
Because of the proximity of the University of Louisville and Churchill Downs, this part of the city is ideal for college students, teachers and sports enthusiasts. And this July, it’s going to be ideal for fish enthusiasts, too. Visit the auction, and see all the action for yourself.
