Holiday Square (Fourth and Jefferson Streets)
Lace up the skates and hit the ice at this pop-up, outdoor skating rink. Get your skate on all day or for just an hour at a time, no matter the weather. Don’t have skates? It’s all good -- you can rent a pair on site.
Bardstown Road Aglow is how the Highlands neighborhood kicks off the holiday season. Businesses along Bardstown Road decorate for the season, offer special deals to shoppers, and Santa Claus even rides the trolley down Bardstown on his way to light up the tree for the first time. Bring the whole family and be sure to bundle up.
