Top 10 February Events

February is filled with interesting and entertaining things to do in and around Louisville. My personal favorite, one that is fun for every age and has an admission price of free, is The Maple Syrup Festival in Indiana. Check it out! It's fun for the whole family. Also, remember the third Monday of February is Presidents' Day.
