Walk Around the Flip N Kicks Sneaker Expo May 16

No sneaker enthusiast is going to want to miss the unique Flip N Kicks Sneaker Expo. People come from as far away as Indianapolis to participate in this fun-filled day of sneakers. Whether you want to sell, buy or trade, you can do it here.

Expose Your Sneakers

The Flip N Kicks Sneaker Expo is at the Fern Valley Hotel and Conference Center at 2715 Fern Valley Road. The fun starts at noon, and the expo lasts all afternoon until 6 pm. Vendors come from Nashville, Cincinnati and even Indianapolis to show off their sneakers. General admission only costs $10, and for that you’ll be in a sneakers paradise.

 Anyone who like sneakers will like it here. Imagine wall-to-wall shopping and shoe shoppers. You never know when you’ll find an amazing pair of sneakers to trade or buy. And if you’re a shoe collector with a few too many pairs, maybe you want to sell some of your sneakers while you’re here.

Sneakers are a great footwear choice if you plan on getting out and enjoying the beautiful summer weather in Louisville this year. Sneakers keep your feet cool but protected when you’re hiking, climbing, biking, or just walking around one of the beautiful Louisville communities.  There are quite a few places to walk around the Fern Valley Road area.

Living in Lynnview

The Expo is just a few blocks away from Lynnview. This residential neighborhood is surrounded by restaurants, schools and main roads that will take you where you want to go. But inside the neighborhood, Lynnview is a quiet community filled with homes and families.

The winding streets are laid out simply, but carefully, to avoid lots of through traffic. This gives children places to play and cuts back on the noisy cars that come through the community. The quiet streets are a great place to take a walk, like if you need to break in some new sneakers maybe. Take a closer look at Lynnview and the entire Fern Valley area this May, and a take a walk around this great part of the city.

Be Pampered with Mom May 10

May 10 is Mother’s Day, and that means it’s the perfect day to go out and get pampered. Have a ladies’ day out at the Bridal Pampering Event, and spend the day celebrating you.

Getting Pampered

From 11 am to 6 pm, you’ll be pampered on May 10. It’s time to give yourself a break from wedding planning, or anything else you may be doing that’s been stressing you out.

 Enjoy a massage, get a facial, have a mani and pedi, and enjoy it all with your mom for Mother’s Day if you like. You’ll sip cocktails, nibble on appetizers and share all the hot gossip while you’re being pampered. This event is all about getting pampered and finding relaxation. When was the last time you took the time to do that?

Go to Bake My Day at 4113 Bardstown Road to take a much-needed break. When you’re done getting relaxed, enjoy a little retail therapy. You’ll be in the Buechel neighborhood, where you’ll find lot of great shopping options.

Shopping in Buechel

Buechel is next to the famous Highlands neighborhood, and lots of people in the Highlands come here to shop. You’ll find the Bashford Manor shopping district here, not to mention lots of small stores and fun places to visit throughout the community. There is a big commercial district in this community, but Buechel is primarily made up of residential neighborhoods.

Residents of Buechel live in pretty communities like Broadmoor Park, Butler Acres, Fountain Woods, Glenmead, Norfolk Estates and the Pines, to name just a few. There are many schools scattered throughout the Buechel area. This is a great place to shop, but it’s also a fantastic place to live. Spend some time in the Buechel area this May 10, and you could have trouble making yourself leave.

Witness a Murder on the Alien Express May 9

Step aboard a starship many years in the future, and have drinks and dinner with universally-famous aliens. But be warned: there is a killer hidden among them. It’s up to you to figure out who the killer is in this intergalactic world where normal forensics no longer apply. Can you figure out whodunnit?

On the Mother Ship

You won’t actually be on an alien ship, but that’s the atmosphere you’ll enjoy during “Murder on the Alien Express”, an event presented by the Whodunnit Murder Mystery Dinner Theater. A mystery will unfold before your very eyes while you have dinner and dance the night away. Can you keep on having fun once you find out that one of the party guests is actually a murderer?

Feel free to join in on the fun by dressing up like an alien if you like, or any other sci-fi character of your choice. When you’re on an alien spaceship, pretty much anything goes.

Arrive at 6:30 pm to get seated, because the show will begin promptly at 7. Tickets cost $45.50 for the dinner, the show, the tax and the gratuity. If you bring a group of 6 or more, you're eligible for a discount.

Step on board the ship at the Hilton Garden Inn at 2735 Crittenden Drive. The show ends at 9:30, so you haven’t got much time to unmask the killer. The Hilton Garden Inn is surrounded by several Louisville attractions and communities. The Wyandotte neighborhood, part of Louisville for more than 100 years, is just minutes away.

Why Wyandotte?

Wyandotte is best-known for Wyandotte Park, which is chock-full of stuff to do. Kids and adults alike keep themselves busy here with volleyball, tennis, basketball, croquet, horseshoes, and the sprayground area. Kids love running beneath the giant fountain at the sprayground. They can dry off at the playground area, which has all the classic features that kids (and the young at heart) enjoy.

The picture-perfect park is just one feature of the neighborhood. Wyandotte is laid out in the simple grid pattern that includes the commercial district along Berry Boulevard and the more residential areas around Sale Avenue. People live and work in the Wyandotte community. The neighborhood has its own schools, shops and plenty of stuff to see and do.

Because Wyandotte is near the center of Louisville, it's close to all the most famous attractions. The neighborhood is only minutes away from Churchill Downs, Kentucky Kingdom, Cardinal Stadium and all the fun you'll find at the Hilton Garden Inn.

Dance Away Derby Night May 2

After the big horse race, most people enjoy going to the after-parties. There are tons of different parties to choose from all over Louisville, but there’s only one Silks in the Bluegrass event. If you like Motown and funk music and you want to help raise money for a good cause, it’s time to put on your silks and start dancing.

Silks in the Bluegrass

Have dinner, sip cocktails and do some dancing at the Silks in the Bluegrass Derby after-party. This event is used to raise funds for Operation Open Arms. This organization, based in Louisville, helps care for children with mothers who are imprisoned.

 Live entertainment will perform to keep you entertained during this event, which begins at 7:30 pm. That’s plenty of time for the horses to run the big race, because that only takes 2 minutes. The party doesn’t end until midnight. Tickets cost $150 per person, which is fine since the proceeds go to charity.

Keep your eyes peeled while you’re dining and dancing. Celebrities and local personalities are bound to attend this fun Derby event. You’ll find it all at the fantastic Crowne Plaza Ballroom at 830 Phillips Lane.

From Silks to Camping

This event is just a few blocks away from Camp Taylor, a pretty Louisville neighborhood that's surrounded by green. The Audubon Country Club is on one side, the Louisville Zoo is on the other. Camp Taylor is close to the major interstates and to big attractions like Kentucky Kingdom, but it maintains a quiet residential feeling just the same. Taylor Memorial Park and the Holy Family School are both within the neighborhood boundaries.

You'll find lots of shopping and eating near Camp Taylor, but you'll also find several of Louisville's best attractions. Louisville Mega Cavern, the Ohio Valley Volleyball Center and the Kentucky Exposition Center are all minutes away.

Before you dance the night away, walk your day away around Camp Taylor. You might decide you want to have a permanent camp here, and join the residents who call this community home.
