Go with the whole family to the Buy Local Fair, and help to support dozens of Louisville businesses, artists and professionals who live and work in the community, just like you. There will be plenty of events for kids and lots of great shopping for adults to enjoy. And of course, there will be bourbon. Buy Local Fair Go to the historic Water Tower Park to explore booths set up by many businesses and local artists to display crafts and goods of all types. Many local farmers will also have booths to sell and display products. Sip on locally-made craft beer and Kentucky-made bourbon while you’re here. Taste what the many food vendors have to offer. Enjoy the live music, and watch an exciting live cooking competition while you’re here. There’s an entire children’s area for kids here, including kid-centric activities. Be sure to visit the Kidpreneur Marketplace, which features businesses that are all run by children age 12 and under. Fair admission is free, and parking costs $5 per car. The Buy Local Fair begins at noon and lasts all afternoon until 6 pm, so show up early to make sure you get to see it all. The Water Tower park is at 3005 River Road, along the banks of the Ohio River and just minutes away from beautiful Mockingbird Valley. Make Your Way to Mockingbird Valley Once you enter Mockingbird Valley, you'll wonder if you're still in Louisville. This neighborhood is really just minutes away from downtown Louisville and all its attractions, but Mockingbird Valley was intentionally designed with an out-in-the-county look so you'll feel far away from all the big city excitement. The large, beautiful homes here are set back from the road on sweeping green lawns, surrounded by thick stands of trees and natural rock outcroppings. Louisville residents first came to Mockingbird Valley in the early 1900s to build their summer homes. To this day, the neighborhood is full of stunning early 20th century architecture dating to the 1920s, 1930s and beyond. Colonial and traditional architecture are everywhere here in stunning brick designs with tall columns, soaring chimneys and gorgeous details that were so unique to this period of early American architecture. These homes are built with molding, hardwood floors, custom woodwork and luxury details everywhere you look. Each one is truly a piece of art all on its own, and each one is a perfect reason to celebrate Louisville's local culture. Fall in love with the best of Louisville this May, and find your dream home in Mockingbird Valley. About the Author:  Joe Hayden is the Team Owner and Manager of the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team - !

The city of Louisville hosts the state fair every year, an elaborate event that’s nationally-known for its food, attractions and rides. What if you’d also like to visit a more country kind of fair, something more low-key and down-home? You’re in luck: the Creasy Country Fair is coming to Goshen this May. Creasey Country Fair Go to the Creasy Country Fair to enjoy fair games and activities, possibly win a raffle and bid on auction items. There will be lots of food trucks, plus adult beverages. This is an adults-only fair for those who are 21 and over. That's right: at this event, you're the one who gets to act like a kid. There will even be live music thanks to a recording artist who's visiting from Nashville. Take a look at the art on display, and feel free to dress casually. After all, much of the fair is located inside a barn. That means cowboy boots aren't just welcome here, they're encouraged! The fair lasts from 6 to 10 pm at the Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve. This event helps to support a good cause. The fair is a fundraiser for a new playground at the nature preserve, something that the kids can enjoy all the time. So, don't feel too guilty about leaving the kids at home. The Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve is at 10301 West Highway 42 in Goshen. This is a community of huge estates and big family homes, sprawling farmland and of course, thoroughbred breeding farms. Can you think of a better place for a country fair? After you see Goshen, you might not be able to think of a better place to live, either. Go and See Goshen Goshen is home to many large farms. But Goshen is also home to many families who come here to enjoy the scenic vistas and the huge lots. Goshen lies north of Louisville along the river, away from all the hustle and bustle of the city itself. There are several schools nearby, a library, places to shop and of course, the beautiful nature preserve. But this neighborhood is mostly filled with homes. Modern farmhouse-style design is all over Goshen, breathtaking homes built in sprawling stone and brick on sweeping green lawns. The custom-built homes here are filled with features that stand out, details like fireplaces, open floor plans, lots of natural light and luxury additions. Go and see Goshen this May, and go see how easy it is to love the real estate here. Who knows? Maybe soon, you'll be a resident of the country, too!
