How many city parks can you think of that features Pagan statuary? Come and
visit Pan in Louisville's premier municipal park on a lovely afternoon in
June. The coordinators of Louisville Pagan Pride Day will be serving FREE
hotdogs and arranging the potluck feast through the lunch and dinner hours.
Bring a picnic lunch; contribute to the potluck, a blanket and some chairs,
and your friends! Everyone is welcome to attend our "gathering', so just
come to hang out if you like.
We realize that oftentimes we have discovered the Pagan path on our own,
practicing in secrecy, in fear of repercussions from others. And though
there are many books and internet sites available today, so much more can be
learned by interacting with others. One of the many missions of the Pagan
Pride Project is the fostering of the Pagan community by providing events
like picnics, festivals and open rituals. To provide people of like minds to
have a safe place to share information and experiences. As the Pagan
community grows, so will the size and number of events like these.
So this, our second event, will be a simple one, just food, friends, and
fun. No formal events have been scheduled, but if someone feels like
officiating an impromptu ritual, there is a large open area down from the
picnic area to do so.
Cherokee Park is easily accessed either by the Bardstown Rd/ Highlands end
of Eastern Parkway or the Grinstead Dr exit of Interstate 64 to the
Lexington Rd entrances. The Scenic Loop Road is mostly one way, and Hogan's
Fountain is at the Eastern Parkway entrance end of the park. Look for the
signs and park along the side of the roadway. For those that use mapping
programs, to locate the main entrance of the park, use the address: 2199
Eastern Parkway, Louisville, KY 40204.
