Nov 17-Dec 31, 2017 - Southern Lights

The annual Southern Lights Holiday Festival takes place Nov. 17-Dec. 31 at the Kentucky Horse Park.

Browse the Kentucky Horse Park Gift Shop and see the Bluegrass Railroad Club Model Trains. Visit their WEBSITE for ticket information.


Nov 25, 2017 - Small Business Saturday

With dozens and dozens of independently-owned shops and boutiques, galleries and restaurants – many located in its picturesque Victorian-era downtown, Georgetown makes it easy to support this annual shopping tradition with promotions and discounts at participating small businesses on Saturday, Nov. 25.
