Like many, once Labor Day comes and goes, I start thinking of the fall and start shifting into that mode, which, with the way Louisville weather works, is a little premature. In September, we usually still have warm weather and lots of sunshine. This weekend, for instance, the weather is supposed to be more summer-y than most days were in June.
Sounds like a perfect time to head to Waterfront Park.
As luck would have it, the 14th annual Fleur De Lis Regatta is going on this weekend, September 6, 7 and 8 is happening this weekend at the Harbor Lawn marina next to the Great Lawn at Waterfront Park.
Thirty-plus sailboats will race for the trophy and there will also be live bands, arts and crafts, a drum circle and local food trucks. The public is welcome to come down and cheer on their favorite sailors.
For this year’s Regatta, the Sailing for a Cure Foundation  has teamed up with Gilda's Club of Louisville  to help raise funds in support of Gilda’s Club’s mission of supporting and empowering all people who are impacted by cancer.
So, get out this weekend, support a good cause, enjoy some sailing, local food and music and enjoy the last vestiges of summer.
