The 2013 Gaslight Festival in Jeffersontown
You may already know by now that the Jeffersontown area has some of the most beautiful homes in Louisville. What you may not know, however, is that one of the most decorated festivals in the entire area is also held in Jeffersontown. The Gaslight Festival in Jeffersontown, KY is an eight day extravaganza of family, food, unique booths, and a ton of fun! The festival has been around since 1969 and brings over 200,000 visitors to the area every September. Every day is a different event that includes local schools, businesses, and families and extends a very gracious invitation to those living outside of J-town.
The 2013 Gaslight Festival began this past Sunday with a Gaslight Motorcycle Rally and continued on Monday with a golf scramble. Below are the events for the remainder of the week:
