Louisville Loves Mountains Festival 2010 is Friday, May 21. NABC and BBC will be there.

May 21 is shaping up to be a very busy day in the region. NABC's event list includes the IUS Ogle Center's Bier Prost at Horseshoe Casino, day one of the Ohio River Valley Folk Festival in Madison, Indiana, the Bicentennial Art Project kickoff walk in downtown New Albany, and Louisville Loves Mountains Festival 2010.

Louisville Loves Mountains is a street party with a message: "Celebrate the unique natural beauty and ecological importance of Kentucky’s Appalachian mountains.” The event's sponsor and beneficiary is Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, "a community of people taking action for justice." Mountaintop removal is only one of many important issues brought to the light of day by KFTC, although it's the theme of Louisville Loves Mountains. Visit the web site and learn more about KFTC.

Louisville Loves Mountains takes place on Longest Avenue, which joins Bardstown Road where Heine Brothers, Carmichael’s Bookstore and Ramsi's Cafe on the World do business. There’ll be art, music and poetry; children-friendly games and food from Ramsi’s and BoomBozz; and craft beer from BBC and NABC.
