Be active (or passive) outside in Louisville this weekend

Print Take advantage of what's supposed to be great weather this weekend by heading outdoors for sports, music and drinking. (And don't forget about the the Gay & Lesbian Film Festival and Visual Arts Festival too.) Southwest Farmers Market June 6, 9 a.m. Valley High School Saturday is the first Southwest Farmers Market of the year. Featuring the usual assortment of local farmers offering fresh produce, meats, eggs, flowers and other local items. It'll be held every Saturday morning through the first weekend in October. Free family fishing June 6, 12 p.m. Waverly Lake Meet at Waverly Lake for this free casting clinic for ages 8 and up. All equipment will be provided. According to the write-up, the lake is "newly renovated," which is the fancy way of saying it's just been stocked so you have a good chance of catching a fish. ECO Kids First Saturday Day June 6, 1 p.m. Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest In honor of June being Every Child Outside (ECOkids) Month and Saturday being National Trails Day, Bernheim is offering a ffree map-guided visual scavenger hunt and hike.

Admission is free. No pets, no booze though. Full Moon Party June 7, 8 p.m. Avalon Avalon, a restaurant I seem to mention regularly, is bringing the beach, an absinthe fountain, specialty cocktails, an absinthe fountain, a DJ and an absinthe fountain to its patio Sunday night for this party in honor of the full moon. Beach attire is encouraged, but don't try to upstage Mother Nature by bringing your own full moon. (Via Consuming Louisville) (Photo: Zach Everson)
