Kentucky offers a lot for those who have a spirit of adventure. One adventure you may enjoy is taking a winter RV trip through Kentucky to enjoy some of the events going on around the state. This winter is forecast to be drier than normal with below-normal snowfall, so this is an ideal time to bundle up and make this winter something to remember.
The season is still young and it is time to get out there and prepare for the upcoming holidays. In Louisville, you can enjoy a wonderful art show and take part in a worthwhile fundraiser besides. On the 7th of November, take the family over to Lexington for the US Dressage Finals which runs through the 10th. Competitors from around the country come to appear on the national stage and go head to head with others in all divisions. Kentucky Horse Park will be alive with horse lovers and all sorts of enthusiastic fans for this event.
Back in Louisville, on the 9th of November, one fun activity is to join with Chancey Elementary for the Chancey 2013 Community Fair. Arts and crafts, a fabulous chili cook-off and plenty of entertainment will highlight your day. Kids love to watch other kids compete in the Kids’ Bakeoff. This event is free! Don’t pass it up!
On November 14, get ready for a musical extravaganza in Lexington. The Bluegrass Burlexpo Kentucky Burlesque and Variety Festival will present some comedy, dance, classic burlesque and much more. This is some entertainment which makes quite a joyful event. All sorts of styles and methods of madness and fun!
Then again in Lexington on the 22nd through the 31st, the 20th Annual Southern Lights will occur, with a journey like you have never experienced. The light displays and other unique displays will take your breath away. You simply drive the route to take in all the lights. It is all happening at the Kentucky Horse Park Campground! Train rides and the petting zoo are really popular with the younger set, but adults love them too. Live reindeer are present to be seen right up close.
The Lexington Christmas Parade on December 3 is a wonderful affair for the family to attend. This is downtown in Lexington, providing food and drink for the family and many activities. The parade itself is a treat. Afterwards, go ice skating on the rink at Triangle Park.
In Versailles, Kentucky on December 14 and 15, take the Santa Claus Train! The kids will all meet personally with the famous man and his wife, Mrs. Claus. The Bluegrass Scenic Railroad is one exciting time, with carols being sung, lovely scenery and much more.
