Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --The NuLu festival honors the rebirth of a Louisville neighborhood.

The area has seen a resurgence in the past five years or so.

Today, marked the fourth annual festival honoring parts of the East Market District and Butchertown.

The festival featured artists, musicians and tents from some of the boutiques, restaurants and shops that now line East Market Street.

"Over even the last four years, it's grown significantly," says NuLu committee member Laura Holmes. "And if you want to look at a 25 year span, it's kind of black and white in terms of what it is and what it used to be. Every day it feels like we have a new restaurant or shop open. It's real exciting, there's a buzz."

The formerly blighted area of Louisville has been featured in the New York Times travel section as a great place to visit.
