Wondering how to spend your well-deserved weekend? Bet on a few of these local, family-friendly events coming up on the horizon.

 

Third Annual Nulu Fest--

Saturday, September 24th head to the 700 block of East Market for the free, fun-filled festival where all the cool-kids (and parents) will sure to be hanging out and looking hip. Kids activities will run from 3:00-7:00, food and beer will run the duration: 2:00-11:00. Live music by The Pass, Broken Spurs, Leigh Ann Yost, Kyle James Hauser, and Peter Searcy will play throughout the day. Rain or shine, hipsters.

 

Children in the Dell at Yew Dell Gardens--

Every Saturday morning, kids 5 and up can take nature hikes, flower paint, participate in scavenger hunts and learn from about the natural world from a variety of educators from 10:30-12:00. On the off chance you're not at a soccer game, this is a lovely way to get outdoors and start the day. Registration is suggested, but drop-ins are welcome as space allows. $5 for members, $10 for non-members.

 

Scarecrow Festival at Boyd's Orchard--

Steer clear of the congested bridges this weekend and venture east to Versailles, KY for a good-old fashioned Scarecrow Festival. September 24-25, families can vote on the best scarecrow, play at the playgrounds (includes a hay-castle) or in the corn maze, visit the animal center, and ride a hayride. $10/child, $7/adult. Pick fresh fruits from the orchard before calling it a day. 1396 Pinckard Pike, Versailles, KY 40383
