First Friday Trolley Hop

The first First Friday Trolley Hop of 2012 was a beautiful event – as always – thanks, in part, to unseasonably warm temperatures and a gorgeous, star-filled night.

The Hop is a monthly art show, tourist attraction, street party and celebration of downtown Louisville that brings new visitors and new life to the Main and Market corridor. The free event takes place on the first Friday of each month from 5 to 11 p.m., rain or shine. Most of the galleries close around 9 p.m. but the restaurants, clubs and shops stay open later. The trolleys run until 11 p.m.
