"How To" Festival teaches you 50 things in 5 hours on May 10th
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Keith Kaiser visits a one stop shop that teaches you how to do anything from belly dancing to yodeling and even how to better your garden.
Want to learn how to yodel? Dress and dine Downton Abbey-style? Grow better tomatoes? Belly dance?
Those are just a sample of more than 50 things people can learn in five hours at the Louisville Free Public Library's third annual How-To Festival.
This year, nearly 100 local presenters will offer a variety of free interactive learning experiences - from dancing to crafts to gardening - that offer entertainment and practical skills for children and adults of all ages.
"How-to" sessions last anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes and cover a range of activities from making great barbeque to performing magic tricks, from aging gracefully to training your dog.
This year's Festival is a mix of past favorites - square dancing, juggling, crocheting, and more - along with new lessons, including how to fence, how to play Texas Hold'em, and how to buy art on a budget.
Technology classes will include how to use Google Apps, geocaching, and how to save to the cloud.
And activities for children will range from how to make balloon animals to how to make ice cream in a bag to how to make a simple rocket.
The How-To Festival happens on Saturday, May 10, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Main Library, 301 York Street.
Sessions will be located in more than 20 areas throughout the building and surrounding grounds, transforming the entire library into a giant classroom.
Food trucks will be available.
The How-To Festival is free and open to the public.
