Day 244: Biking to WorldFest

4 09 2010

This afternoon we rode our bikes downtown to check out WorldFest, the annual event that features food, music and crafts from several dozen countries. More than 100 vendor booths provide information on the dozens of international cultures represented here in Louisville. According to Metro Louisville’s website, the Kentucky Tourism Council (KTC) chose WorldFest as one of the Top 10 Summer Festivals and Events for 2010 and the latest issue of Southern Living named the event one of the Top Ten Events to attend in the South. Pretty cool! And right here in Louisville! 

The weather today was perfect. High 70s to low 80s. It made me realize how ready I am for Fall. It’s still a bit early for Fall color I guess, but I’m ready. 

The camera store called me yesterday and said my Canon lens (the one that died while I was in Virginia on vacation) was repaired and ready to be picked it up. It was perfect timing since I had hoped to take it with me on our ride to WorldFest today. I’m happy to have it back! I didn’t shoot a lot of photos, but here are a few from the day’s events:

The beautiful weather brought out a LOT of people today.

We serve Oink, Moo and Cock-a-doodle-doo.


I don't know the name for this kind of costume, but it was fascinating to watch.


The guys inside the costume caught the crowd's attention.


Today’s food journal: 

— Whole wheat english muffin = 1 point
— 1 Tbsp peanut butter = 2 points 

— Veggie chicken patty = 3 points
— Deli flat bread = 1 point
— 1/2 cup chocolate milk = 1.5 points 

— Club sandwich on wheat = 8.5 points (est.)
— Iced tea = 0 points 

— Frozen fruit bar (no sugar added) = 1 point 

— 8 mile bike ride (slow pace) = + 2 activity points 

Life’s a journey. Enjoy the ride!

Love the “We serve oink, moo, cock-a-doodle-doo” sign. Tempted to torture my International English class by asking them what it means. 🙂

Yeah, I thought that was a pretty creative sign. Sounds like a great homework assignment. 🙂 Thanks for visiting, Steven.
