Crafting, traveling and everything in between.

Butchertown Art Fair and Waterfront Park

Though the iPhone was a failure at the Americana World Festival, it was somewhat serviceable at the Butchertown Art Fair and Waterfront Park. We visited both on a Sunday a couple weekends ago.

My in-laws told us that the the art fair is usually small. That doesn’t speak, however, to the quality of the products. I thought many of the artisans had nice items.

I really enjoyed the architecture and tree-lined streets in the community, too. Excuse the recycling bin. It doesn’t really make for  a great photo.

We spent some time speaking with some ladies from Preservation Louisville. Some of the organization’s efforts include preserving the city’s shotgun houses.

One of the women recommended hooking up with a couple of neighborhood associations close to our home. I’ve looked them up and am currently keeping tabs on the groups’ Facebook pages. The associations don’t necessarily serve our immediate neighborhood, but we’re all pretty much in the same area. Many of the similar issues affect us equally, such as vandalism at local businesses, plans for the Taylor Boulevard and New Cut Road corridor and activities at Iroquois Park.

After leaving Butchertown, we decided to take a stroll at Waterfront Park. While walking along the river front we saw the Belle of Louisville.

It was threatening rain, so not many folks were out and about and we decided not to stray too far from our car.
