SATURDAY, APRIL 8

2023 Frankfort Avenue Easter Parade Starts at 2822 Frankfort Ave. Free | 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Hop on down to Crescent Hill and Clifton to see floats, dancers, and more.

Shakespeare in the Parks — Hamlet Seneca Park (rain location: Waldorf School of Louisville) Free | 2 p.m.

The play’s the thing! Kentucky Shakespeare’s 90-minute touring production of “Hamlet” has been on the road for the last few weeks, but it recently returned to Louisville. Check out LEO’s photos of the show. (If you can’t make this performance, you can also catch the show at Iroquois Park at 6:30 p.m. the same day.)

LouisvilleCon Triple Crown Pavilion (1780 Plantside Dr.) $20 for adults, free for children 10 and under | 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

All the standard fare of a fan convention: a cosplay contest, anime merch, tabletop games, special guests, and more.

EXTREME EASTER The ArenA (1416 Spring St., Jeffersonville, IN) $8 | 7:30 p.m.

Easter is a time of peace, joy, lilies, lambs, and, in some cases, piledrivers. Take your holiday weekend to the extreme — egg-streme? — at this Easter-themed wrestling show. The fight card includes Brutal Ben Baker, Dirty Dirty Dirty Scrubbz Magee, Mickey Midas, Rough Rider Roy, Scarecrow, and more.

Editor’s Note: This post originally said that admission to LouisvilleCon was free. It is free for children 10 and under, but $20 for adults. The time on the performance of "Hamlet" at Iroquois Park has also been corrected; the show is at 6:30 p.m., not 6 p.m.?
