Bardstown is filled with events, festivals


Greetings once again from Bardstown, the little historic town that seems to at times be the rainiest place I’ve ever lived.

School was back in session for both Bardstown City Schools and Nelson County Schools on August 4.

The ‘Ghost Walk’ has started early this year. It normally begins in November through Halloween every Saturday night. Patti Starr leads this event. The group meets at the Old Stable Restaurant at 7 p.m. The cost is $15 per person. A friend and I went on this last year, and if I ever get in an adventurous, dramaseeking mood, I would go on it again, but it isn’t likely in the near future.

I can tell you, if you’re a skeptic, you likely won’t be after you’ve been in the upstairs banquet room of the Old Talbot Tavern, and it had nothing whatsoever to do with the lights going on and off and the door flying open. Those things can be theatrical.

The Whiskey City Cruisers are also doing their car shows the first Saturday of every month throughout the summer. The best thing about living here is that there is always something going on.

The Buttermilk Festival will be this month, and there will be booths set up for the week as well as games and concessions.

Sept. 15-20 will be the Bourbon Festival. Four bands will play behind City Hall at the Music on the Lawn event that Friday. Scheduled to appear are Andrew Scott Newton and the Kentucky Headhunters. There are two other bands as well, but I don’t have the names of them yet.

There are booths set up during that festival too, and a car show. It is a fun and busy week with lots of music and lots of activities.

Prayer list this week includes Betty Armstrong, June Clark, Jeff Lester, Julie Rummage and Judy Branham.
