World Fest 2011...3 days of dancing, music, foods, arts, crafts and fun from a variety of cultures all in one place. From Hard Rock Cafes Tour Bus, to Louisville's very own talented musicians performing on the steps as you enter World Fest; you could hear and see the Belvedere spark with laughter, applause and smiles of approval as thousands daily enjoyed the festivities.
Driving onto Main and 3rd St., the aroma of the ethnic cuisines coming from the Belvedere and World Fest tantalized the taste buds. I love the gyros, which I get from a certain vendor every year and couldn’t wait to see him to enjoy that delicious treat, which proved to be worth the wait.

He said, "riding down the road and one popping off so you have to go chase it." I found that quite amusing given the story that artist Karen Welch relayed to me about a certain artist hub cap. You can hear that story and see that hubcap for the final week at the Museum of Arts and Crafts.www.kentuckyarts.org
