Lunch-time event includes food trucks and entertainment
LOUISVILLE (July 7, 2016) – Mayor Greg Fischer today announced a new, interactive lunch time experience in downtown Louisville that includes food trucks and live entertainment.
As part of the new Jefferson Street Jam – set for Tuesdays, July 12 and August 9, citizens are encouraged to gather with their lunch, co-workers and friends on the steps of Metro Hall, near a stage fronting Jefferson Street.
On July 12, the Jam will feature salsa dancing, with The Ville Casinersa and the Mundo Mix from 100.9 FM Crescent Hill Radio.
The Mayor’s Jefferson Street Jam is part of a larger effort to encourage citizens to explore Louisville’s vibrant downtown.
“This event gives people from all parts of the city the opportunity to come downtown, grab an inexpensive lunch and free entertainment right here in the heart of the city,” said Mayor Fischer. “We hope to not only see people taking their lunch breaks, but also families with kids on summer vacation, and visitors. There is so much to see downtown, and we expect many families to take advantage of this opportunity to explore it.”
Metro Hall is located at 527 West Jefferson Street, and the entertainment runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Food trucks, picnic tables, and shaded areas will be set up along Jefferson Street. Media partner WLKY will be onsite handing out free beverage koozies.
