Thunder Over Louisville-an Event Not to Be Missed!

At least some time in your life, you need to get to one of the biggest fireworks shows and air shows in the country.  We started the day with the parachutes dropped from the sky into the cold Ohio River.  When the day is so pretty, this is what you get, a mass of humanity.  Luckily my husband's office is on the corner of the 7th floor and we got a birds eye view of the show.  I'll try to upload the video of the show, but, I think it won't work.  If not, I'll try to put it on YouTube.  

Lucky for the Kentucky side, the wind was blowing right into Indiana and Jeffersonville.  We hadn't been in 4 or 5 years and I can't believe how much it's grown.  

I'm amazed at how this sliver of yellow tape keeps people so well behaved and staying out of their "territory".  Tents were everywhere, in plane view of signs stating "no tents".  But, from what I could see it was a very well behaved bunch of people, enjoying their big free show.  Louisville is fortunate in that regard.  We have many free fun things to do, especially before the Derby.  The parade and balloon race are just a couple of the free options.  

Another free show here is Waterfront Wednesday.  On Wednesdays in the in summer our Public Radio Partnership gas a free concert every last Wednesday of the month.  It's a wonderful opportunity for families to bring their lawn chairs and quilts to the waterfront for a day of great music, some of them soon to be big acts and some already in the spotlights.

Great photos of Thunder! I had to settle for watching it on TV, but the TV doesn't do it justice!
