Moulin Rouge at the Speed

 

Everybody knows that France is for lovers and since this city is named after King Louis XVI, we can declare that Louisville is too. At least for this Valentine’s weekend. The Speed Museum is helping to heat things up by hosting two events that will have your significant other saying “Oui, oui.”
