• Top 10 Thunder Tips:

Pick-up the Official Thunder Program in The Courier-Journal Saturday, April 22nd – it has a Thunder map and full airshow schedule.
Wear your Pegasus Pin. Show your support for the Festival, plus you’ll need it for the Thunder Chow Wagon, Meijer Family Fun Zone on the West Belvedere and North Great Lawn viewing area.
Park as far away from the event venue as you can comfortably walk. Refer to the LMPD Traffic Plan to help choose the best place to park and exit route.
Dress in layers. The temperature can vary a great deal throughout the day. Bring sunglasses & sunscreen.
Know your limits and your children’s limits for the day. Seven hours can be a long day for toddlers. Consider picking airshow OR fireworks.
Bring a roll of toilet paper (Thunder Pots can run out!)
Please do NOT bring pets, tents or materials to rope off/section off areas of the venue.
You can bring food and drink to the venue (except in the Thunder Chow Wagon). Vending is also available throughout the venue. (All parcels subject to search.)
Familiarize yourself with your surroundings AND be aware of the services around you…EMS, Lost Child Stations, General First Aid.
Make sure your car has plenty of gas for the exit traffic delays.

St James Court Art Show

• What we'll do
This is an open meeting. Want to help organize a place and time to meet up and walk together? Make a suggestion in the comments! :) You can also contact the organizer to be added to admin. The St. James Court Art Show® is a juried fine arts and contemporary crafts show held among the country’s largest collection of Victorian homes in the heart of historic Old Louisville.

For over 61 years, the first full weekend in October has meant that it’s St. James Court Art Show time. What originally began as a way to pay the bills has become an autumn tradition that draws hundreds of thousands of visitors to see (and purchase) original art from talented artists.

Don’t miss out ~ check out the latest Art Show news!

In addition to connecting artists and art lovers, The St. James Court Art Show awards $52,000 in college scholarships to metro Louisville high school seniors each year. More information about our scholarships can be found here.
