    Fall has finally arrived in Louisville with the opening of Churchill Downs’ fall meet. The meet will run Sunday, Oct. 28 through Sunday, Nov. 25 with live racing Wednesday through Sunday.

    The 21-day meet kicks off Sunday, Oct. 28 with a showcase of two-year-olds.

    Opening day, and every Sunday during the meet, is Family Fun Day presented by Kroger. Families and children are encouraged to take part in specially planned activities each Sunday. This Sunday, Churchill Charlie, the Churchill Downs mascot, will lead kids in a trick-or-treat parade through the Downs. Click here for more details on this event.
