Taking kids to local farms has many benefits. Children need to appreciate that food doesn't grow at the grocery store. Families in our community grow the food that goes to the grocery store. It' is good to see vegetables and fruit growing from the ground so that they learn to appreciate the importance of clean air and clean water. They see that it goes into the food we eat. They also see at the farmer's store a variety of items that can be made with fruits and vegetables, such as apple pie, apple butter, apple cider, dried apples, apple juice. It helps them think creatively of how to cook other foods. It teaches children to support our local farmer by buying local produce. It helps our local economy....

A lot of Halloween festivities are centered around children putting on their costumes and trick-or-treating while the parents watch from afar. Time to change the tradition! This Friday on Halloween from 6pm to 1030pm hop on the Frankfort Avenue Trolley for some fun around the city. The event is sponsored by Maker's Mark and of course there will be Maker's Mark drink specials. The best part? You are encouraged to bring your children in costume as the trolley will be making stops for children to trick-or-treat along the way!
The Frankfort Avenue Trolley, or F.A.T for short, is a favorite among locals for Friday night entertainment and fun. It is a signature event in Louisville and has been for more than 10 years! Many restaurants and local businesses participate in FAT Fridays, which is held on the last Friday of every month, and offer food and drink specials along the way.
The Halloween themed trolley this Friday October 31st is special since children are encouraged to come along in their best costumes. The trolley will make stops on the route to allow children to trick-or-treat and collect candy from participating restaurants and businesses. This will surely be a unique and memorable way for both you and your children to experience a beautiful Halloween night! The trolley is FREE to ride.
There is certainly something to be said about the beauty and magnificence of historic Frankfort Avenue and the surrounding area. With several local businesses and restaurants involved in almost every event in the area it creates a great sense of community and a sense of being at home that is hard to match elsewhere.
