One man’s look at LouisvilleKY’s First Bourbon and Beyond Festival

705

By Jackie Hollenkamp Bentley

Louisville, Ky., – I, personally, did not go to Bourbon & Beyond, but my husband, Eric Bentley did on Sunday.

“This is what the Kentucky State Fair should be.”

Needless to say, he had a good time.

From Stevie Nicks to Jack Bauer, I mean, Keifer Sutherland, to Joe Bonamassa to many other top notch performers that performed Saturday and Sunday, thousands of people piled into Louisville Champions Park.

Even Mayor Greg Fischer is gushing about the weekend’s success on Facebook.

“Thanks, Wimmer Presents for an excellent inaugural Bourbon and Beyond. One. Amazing. Weekend.”

 

Here are some pictures Eric Bentley took Sunday. If the nighttime pictures look foggy, well, that’s because the fog rolled in off the Ohio River, which added even more “coolness” to the experience.
