Glow Cave Kayaking
Have you ever seen an underground waterfall? That’s just one highlight of SUP Kentucky’s Mine Glow, their most popular cave kayaking Kentucky adventure in Red River Gorge.
You’ll paddle through an abandoned limestone mine by the glow of your LED lights and your headlamp. Keep an eye out for rainbow trout who often follow the tour. If you’re lucky, you’ll see a Kentucky brown bat taking a rest on the limestone walls.

Rollin’ on the River Craft Beer Festival
Saturday, June 8
Howard Steamboat Museum | 1101 E. Market Street, Jeffersonville, IN | $55 general admission / Designated Drivers free- 3-7 p.m. | 21 and over
Although there are some great beer festivals in the Louisville area, Fest of Ale in New Albany was always my favorite. Unfortunately, the 2019 edition of the festival would turn out to be its last. Now five years later, it’s back...sort of. Pearl Street Taphouse and Antz Marching, LLC, (founders of the Fest of Ale and former owner of Keg Liquors), present the inaugural Rollin’ on the River Craft Beer Festival at the Howard Steamboat Museum in Jeffersonville. Expect well over 100 craft beers from more than 65 different breweries, as well as fine wines, ciders, and seltzers. Attendees will also enjoy local food vendors, games, live music, swag, giveaways, and raffles. The expansive grounds boast beautiful views of the Ohio River, plenty of shade, room to roam, and is located just blocks from downtown Jeffersonville.
