As Midterms quickly approach, it is time to start thinking about fun activities to do in Louisville over Christmas break. Some activities include:

1. Lights Under Louisville: Drive through the Louisville Mega Cavern to see their holiday light show.  It is a great way to get into the Christmas spirit! Tickets are $30 per car for a 30 minute ride through 17 miles of underground passageways. http://lightsunderlouisville.com

2. Southern Lights Stroll: Walk, run, or jog through the Kentucky Horse Park to see their display of lights. The Southern Lights Show is a 5k that begins at the Kentucky Horse Park Campground and will proceed through many lights and animated figures. Great way to stay fit while also getting in the Christmas spirit! http://www.kyhorsepark.com/events/featured-events/southern-lights-stroll

3. Louisville Ballet Nutcracker: Experience the beauty of the Louisville Ballet dancer’s while watching Marie and the nutcracker prince travel to the land of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

4. Old Louisville Holiday Home Tour: Tour Victorian style homes decorated for the holidays. This years homes will feature newly patented light bulbs invented by Thomas Edison, the Southern Exposition, and even Victorian Tea. http://oldlouisville.org/holiday-home-tour/

5. Nutcracker on Ice. The Louisville Skating Academy presents an abridged version of the Nutcracker, performed on ice. http://www.skatelouisville.org/events/nutcracker-on-ice/

“Over Christmas break, I unfortunately have to get my wisdom teeth out,” Senior Katie Arnold said.  “But to make that experience a little better I will be attending Lights Under Louisville. I have never been, so I am really excited to see it.”

Have a wonderful Christmas Break ladies!
