10 under $5 – What To Do This Week In Louisville (9/3)


Subway Fresh Fit Hike, Bike & Paddle
Waterfront Park
Free  |  8 a.m.-noon
Before you grill the brats and ribs for that final summer cookout (or the vegan dogs, portobello burgers and tasty, tasty eggplants), burn some calories and allay that guilt at this annual convergence of athleticism. The day starts with fitness demonstrations, such as yoga, tai chi, Zumba and pickleball. After, go for a mass paddle on the Ohio River, a bike ride or a hike. This is not a race and is open to all. Please be courteous on the road… and careful.


Non-Profit Fair
George J Howe Red Barn
Free  |  11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Interested in working or volunteering with a nonprofit? Curious what’s in the area? This Non-Profit Fair will showcase over 90 nonprofits in the area that are ready to talk to you. You’ll also find free food and coffee from Starbucks.
