Candlelight Christmas at Locust Grove

One of the most popular events of the season, Candlelight Christmas at Locust Grove is back. The year is 1809. Amidst the warm glow of candles, the Clark and Croghan families (played by skilled, historically-accurate costumed interpreters) wait to invite visitors to visit and partake of holiday cheer. The home itself is decorated in a manner appropriate for the "country seat" of Major William Croghan and his distinguished relatives and guests, and all manner of greens and fresh fruit enliven the windows, mantels, and staircase. For this very special festive occasion, the house is decorated in Regency-style Christmas splendor. Visitors will engage in lively conversations with family and friends of the Clarks and Croghans, while out in the hearth kitchen, recently harvested foods will be prepared over an open fire and refreshments will be on offer. In addition to the historical figures in attendance, visitors will be treated to authentic nineteenthcentury music, played expertly by a talented contemporary of Locust Grove’s founding families, and to dancing in the grand ballroom.

Lights Under Louisville

Louisville Mega Cavern Lights Under Louisville

While Louisvillians on the surface are busy decking the halls and lighting up the city, Louisville Mega Cavern is preparing for a more subterranean holiday experience. Starting November 16th, Louisville Mega Cavern will be transformed into an underground light spectacular for the holiday season. Parents are invited to load up the kids and enjoy a 30-40 minute ride through 17 miles of underground passageways, which will feature over 800 lit characters with over 2,000,000 points of light. It's the only underground light show of its kind on the planet!

Mega Cavern zip line tours and historic tours are also available during this time. While on the historic tour, participants will learn how the cavern was a former limestone pit mine housing the largest civil defense shelter in Kentucky, with provisions for 50,000 people to live underground for an extended period of time. The zip line is the only underground zip line adventure tour in the world. For a really unique holiday experience, however, the Mega Cavern Lights Under Louisville event is the way to go.

Mega Cavern's Lights Under Louisville allows the public to drive their own vehicle inside the cavern to experience a unique holiday transformation. It's a great way to get the family in the mood for the holidays, and also offers a chance for educational opportunities. From mid-November to the end of the year, show hours are Monday Friday 6 pm to 10 pm, Saturday & Sunday 5 pm to 10 pm. Admissions fees are as follows: Cars, trucks, SUVs, and minivans: $25.00 Vans: $35.00 Limos: $50.00 Church Buses (excluding school bus size): $50.00 School Buses: $150.00 While the rest of Louisville watches the snow fall and the buildings light up, Louisville Mega Caverns will allow friends and family to enjoy a wholly unique, exciting lights experience that they’ll never forget. Since it’s warmer in the cavern than on the streets of Louisville, it’s easy and comfortable to make Lights Under Louisville a new tradition beneath the city!

National Drunk Driving Month

December is a time of good cheer, great friends, and holiday get-togethers, most of which are enjoyed with the standard libations— egg nog, mulled wine, hot toddies, or simply a glass of wine or a beer. It’s easy to overindulge in holiday excess, however, and so it’s also a good time to remember that December is National Drunk Driving Month. For when holiday revels prove to be too much, Louisville Yellow Cab offers convenience, comfort, and courtesy, as well as a measure of safety. A locally-owned company, Yellow Cab is the oldest and largest taxicab service in Louisville and Southern Indiana, with approximately 230 cabs on the road. No matter the hour or the place, Louisville Yellow Cab can get everyone from party to party, and then back home again in one piece. The company prides itself on its convenience and ease of use, and offers online cab

ordering, requests for pickup using texting, a smartphone mobile site, and wheelchair accessible vehicles. They accept all major credit cards, and can even take passengers as far as Lexington, Cincinnati, or Indianapolis! Their metered fare is: Starting cab rate = $4.70 Each additional mile = $2.25 An additional charge of $3.00 per passenger—beginning with the 5th passenger—may be added to the metered fare. Up to four people can ride for the price of one! Visit them online at www.loucabs.com, call them at 502.636.5511, or send a text to 502.416.1119. This season, the best holiday gift is summed up in Yellow Cab’s motto: “arrive alive, don’t drink and drive.”
