October is the perfect month for venturing somewhere new.  The scenic routes around the state are full of colors – so even the drive makes for a part of a perfect outing.  Here are five awesome festivals taking place this month that we think are worth getting to!

St. James Court Art Show (Louisville, early October) – This is a staple!  Set in the historic Victorian district of Old Louisville, this festival is an eclectic mix of shopping, entertainment and art.  It has something for everyone – even the kids.  

Hunter’s Moon Fall Festival (Grand Rivers, early October) – There are three days of fun for this festival complete with a pancake breakfast, a pageant, a parade, stage with entertainment and a kids area.  There’s a trolley around town for free and……cake walk – need we say more. 

Mt. Washington Fall Festival (Mount Washington, Mid-October) – This festival is made possible by the local Lions Club.  Car show, fish fry, carnival, wild west show, vendors and more.  It’s FREE!

ColorFest at Berheim (Clermont, Mid-October) – It’s a celebration of exactly what it says,the gorgeous colors of the season.  Berheim is great all year round, but perfect in the fall.  Crafts, hayrides, slingshots – what’s not to love?   Free admission ($5 environmental fee per car for non-members)

Woolly Worm Festival (Lee County, late-October) – Does the name say it all?  What a name, right?    It’s everything you want in a festival – stages full of random entertainers from animal acts to bluegrass music, a car show and…..a woolly worm race you won’t want to miss.
