There are just a ton of fun things to do in Louisville this weekend. School is finally out and it is the official start of summer.
One of my favorite things to do once it gets warm is the First Friday Trolley Hop. If you make it downtown, be sure to wander into my favorite store the “Red Tree” where you can grab a glass of wine and search for treasures.
Here is a list of everything you can do this first weekend in June:
