Around the South: Week of December 13th, 2009

14 12 2009

There’s so much going on around the South!

We here at SIT wish we could get to each and every one of our events, but alas, we have families and jobs and well, a normal-sized pocketbook. But we have friends in Southern places – you!

So each week (we’ll try and post these on Mondays, so you can plan your week), we’ll post a little sampling about what goes on around our parts of the world. Isn’t the South great? There’s always much to see and do.

Our only request is that you report back to us, okay? Send us pictures, other events you may know of, anything! We consider you far and wide our friends, so let’s have a little chat, ok.

Lexington, Kentucky

  • Southern Lights 2009 in Lexington, KY from November 20- December 31. A dazzling array of lights through the Kentucky Horse Park complete with a petting zoo, pony and camel rides and craft vendors.
  • Christmas in the Park in Elizabethtown, KY from November 26-Jan 1. More than 100 holiday light displays (over 1 million lights) on Freeman Lake.
  • Winter Wonderland in Owensboro, KY from November 27-Jan 1. This really sounds like the best one around! They have tons of holiday happenings including the tri-state’s largest outdoor skating rink. Free ice skating on Mondays!
  • Southern Living listed Louisville as one of the top five cities for a Southern Christmas! Light up Lake Forest: 1200 homeowners light up houses and lawns beginning the first week in December about 25 minutes from the city.

Many thanks to my friends, Laura and David, over at the Dawkins Narrative for many of the tips in my beloved Kentucky.
