Posted by Amy Kelch - email

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Preparations are underway for the 30th Annual Light Up Louisville celebration. The free event is, once again, scheduled for the day after Thanksgiving.

Light Up Louisville festivities will include food, crafts, a parade, children's activities and other entertainment. It takes place on the grounds surrounding Metro Hall, at the corner of Sixth and Jefferson Streets.

Light Up Louisville kicks off at 3:00 PM on November 26 with Christmas music by local groups and choirs as well as a healthy event.

"We'll have the Run Run Rudolph again," said Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson, "as we did last year. It's a 5K run or walk presented by Baptist Hospital as a part of the Healthy Hometown movement."

"It's a great way to follow up on a meal after thanksgiving"

The 5K starts at 3:00 PM, and the entry fee is $20.00 for adults and $10.00 for kids 12 and under.

"It's a great way to follow up on a meal after Thanksgiving," said Mayor Abramson.
