    Worldfest 2015 is the best ongoing labor day weekend event celebrating diversity of cultures and cuisines in Louisville, KY, USA

    Worldfest 2015 is a great ongoing event on the banks of the Ohio river in Belvedere the area of Louisville, KY, USA that started on Friday and will end on labor day tomorrow. What so great about it? Everything from the graceful Irish dancers (image 1 and video seen in media number, the colorful African dresses (imgae 3), the handicrafts from Ecuador (image 4) to the cuisine from France (image 5), from India (image 6), from Cambodia (image 7) from USA (image 8) , Caribbean style Pina colada (image9) and other drinks that kept the crowd cool and well hydrated on a steamy hot day with temperature at 91 def F or 33 deg. C (image 10). Most of the time when we think of food at outdoor events in Louisville the food is salty, fatty and sugary but I was determined to find out what was suitable for me. So I started of with spinach crepe of the french chef Louis which I was told was no salt added and tasted quite authentic and delicious. My next stop was at the Indian restaurant, Taj Palace and had a superb samosa after peeling of most of the deep fried shell. Then I stopped by the Cambodian stall and the chicken on stick was curried but with no salt so that took care of my need for protein and then finally before desert I stopped at the Valumarket a local grocery store that had a stall in which they served potato balls and an unsalted unbuttered corn on the cob and I was set. I had the smallest portion of chocolate gelato with strawberry gelato mix at Gilbert's (the owner spent some years in Florence) and I was done and ready for the colorful display of exotic dresses from around the world and the dances from around the world. The Irish dance school had put out a lively show of young girls with classical dancers. It is great to have the world come to your neighborhood and provide a peek into their culture and a taste of their food in just a few hours. Those who have not had the chance to visit the Worldfest still have tomorrow to do that. Louisville is just a 2 hour drive from Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Nashville and if there is nothing exciting happening Louisville will be a place to visit and enjoy the world.
