Sports lovers should make a stop at the Louisville Slugger Museum, Kentucky Derby Museum and Muhammad Ali Center; history lovers can sip mint juleps on a river cruise aboard the Belle of Louisville, a National Historic Landmark. This and so much more is possible in Louisville. There is a lot to do, as in, whatever you want. And we’ve got some ideas for you in our monthly podcasts at www.GoToLouisville.com. – Jim Wood

Enjoy down home fun and lots of music on the Sunny Side

Have you ever wanted to go back to the “good old days” when life was simpler, people were more patriotic and folks crowded to see the local Fourth of July parade? Well, a glimpse into the past is possible this Fourth of July with Jeffersonville’s Freedom Parade. The Fourth of July holiday weekend starts July 3rd and runs thru the 6th with loads of fun and free music. Be a part of it! The quiet river city just across the Ohio River from Louisville brings together the local community with marching entries, floats, fire trucks and flags for the annual Freedom Parade. This year’s event starts at 11 am at the intersection of Spring Street and Riverside Drive and proceeds through the city’s historic downtown district to Warder Park at the intersection of Spring Street and Court Avenue. Following the parade there’s good family fun in the park with its small town “Norman Rockwell” atmosphere. If you’re around the day before the parade, stop by Jeffersonville’s RiverStage July 3rd to hear Alabama native, Tim Dugger. His music reflects the passion he holds for both country music and great songwriting. He's currently in the studio with famed producer Jim Ed Norman (Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, Kenny Rogers) working on his debut Curb album. The Linda Smith Band opens for Dugger at 7 pm. Her band brings a rush of pure energy. Performing some of the most requested songs from Country, Classic rock, Oldies, and Blues, the band has drawn quite a following. Wednesday the 4th, you can listen to The Endless Summer Band with Zellus opening at 7 pm on the RiverStage. The band's four lead vocalists provide great diversity in musical style. Their Variety Show features audience participation, humor, colorful costumes, high energy choreography, and dramatic sound and lighting effects. In neighboring New Albany, holiday festivities are scheduled the 3rd at 7 pm with one of the hottest area bands around, The Louisville Crashers. Festivities in New Albany are held at the city’s Riverfront Amphitheater. The group is arguably the hottest band in the Louisville Metro area. The Crashers will play till dusk at which time the city will put on a fireworks display. If you are in town through July 6, you will have additional opportunities to hear some free live music. New Albany’s Live@5 program will bring Louisville recording artist Olivia Henken to the downtown stage starting at 5 pm. Jeffersonville offers two choices Friday the 6th. RiverStage at Spring Street and Riverside Drive, will feature The Horizontal Boogie Band opening for an always popular band, The Rumors. That concert runs from 7 - 10:30 pm. Jeffersonville’s Concerts in the Park series, held in Warder Park at Spring Street and Court Avenue, will feature the big band music of June Kelly Roy and Top Notch starting at 7:30 pm.
