Just awful!! Been waiting an hour and a half to see Christmas lights and I’m not even close. Poorly organized, one lane, and non moving bumper to bumper traffic forever now. Going home and not coming back.

Mike and Hannah brought the rawkus. Splendid time. Their bridge knowledge was somewhat disappointing.

Lights Under Louisville begins to open up with less wait time after Christmas Day. If possible usually the last hour of the night, (9PM-10PM) has the least amount of wait time on any night.
