Have you heard of the popular hyper-local blog entitled Louisville Family Fun? It should be on your radar if not before, then definitely now. Louisville Family Fun is a website dedicated to providing Louisville families with none other than, well, FUN! And they are teaming up with a natural gem in Oldham County to bring your family four hours nonstop of it this weekend, Sunday, July 21. It’s going to be an old-fashioned day of fun for your whole family at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve.
There will be door prizes from Earth Fare, Kentucky Science Center, Sweet Frog Louisville, among others. There will be 25 or more various booths at the festival, all offering something fun for the children to participate in. It won’t be a typical set up in which vendors are selling their product: each booth has something to do with your kids! Some of the offerings are crafts for kids, free sunscreen for the family provided by Louisville Family Fun, water slides, face painting, jewelry making, dippin’ dots, free water provided by Louisville Water Company, and a fire hose splashdown from the North Oldham Fire Department! This is just a sampling of what will be on hand at this fabulous outdoor family event. Your family will have a blast with all of this entertainment, but what may be even more surprising is if your family (like mine) has never been to Creasey Mahan, they are in for a treat all in itself. This beautiful nature preserve has so much to offer. What a fun way to explore it and take in the breathtaking views on their grounds!
The cost for admission is as follows: $2 for children ages 3 and up; $10/per family maximum; children under age 2 and parents are FREE. All proceeds from admission are going toward the Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve – it’s a fundraiser for the preserve. The event will run from 11am-3pm. There is also a free gift for the first 100 families who arrive. An ice cream eating contest is on tap at 2pm. Pizza from Papa John’s and other concessions from Fuzziwig’s Candy Factory and Valley Dairy Freeze will be on sale at a very affordable price.
