Jeffersonville secures food vendors for Thunder
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Jeffersonville has contracted with Louisville's Sivori Catering to provide food and drink booths along its Riverside Drive for Thunder Over Louisville's air show and fireworks April 12.
Parks department director Paul Northam said the city had signed a one-year contract with Sivori to place the booths in the 700- and 800-blocks of East Riverside Drive and under the Kennedy Bridge. The city will receive 20 percent of sales, Northam said.
A contract for this year was in question in late March as residents of the Harbours condominiums asked that booths not be placed in the 600-block of Riverside Drive, in front of their homes as in years past.
City leaders were concerned about a possible loss of revenue in addition to fewer attractions for its Thunder visitors.
Northam said the city completed a three-year contract with Sivori in 2013.
