The parade will kick off at 3 PM, starting at Phoenix Hill and ending at Mid-City Mall.   Come early so you can grab a good spot along the parade route.  There will be a lot of fun floats and groups in the parade this year, surely to entertain the wee lads and lassies.  Beads, candy and other trinkets will be handed out by the groups as they pass along the route.


After the parade, there will be an award presentation for best groups, held at O’Shea’s Irish Pub on Baxter Avenue.

Louisville's Highlands Area to Welcome New Ramen Restaurant

The owners of the new ramen shop want to make one thing really well – ramen!

There’s no doubt that Louisville is a thriving foodie city, but the addition of a specialized ramen shop on 2009 Highland Ave. will certainly bring a new experience. The Highlands is a perfect area for “Ramen Inochi,” a restaurant seeking to do one thing very well – ramen.

Large cities are full of these kinds of shops, but this is a relatively new idea for the Louisville diners. And it’s ideal for those living in the Highlands. Because like so many other amenities in the area, it’s a convenient way to gain a whole new and delicious cultural experience. This is not your college-self’s ramen in a $0.25 packet – it’s an authentic, flavorful mastery of culinary senses!

Ramen Inochi will be open for dinner every night, with extra-late night dining on the weekends. They’ll serve mostly the traditional recipes with a few twists and fusions.
