Fred's Facts

“A man’s eyes cannot be as much occupied as they are in large cities by artificial things …without a harmful effect on his entire constitutional organization… Landscape was able to refresh and delight the eye and through the eye, the mind and the spirit.” -- Frederick Law Olmsted

Boo La La Halloween Ball


Ghosts and goblins are gossiping. Witches and wizards are whispering. The news is spreading like an outbreak of zombies. We are excited to announce the 2016 Boo La La Halloween Ball will be held at a fabulous new venue and we will be rocking to a new band!

  • New Venue: The Louisville Executive Aviation Hangar at Bowman Field! This venue offers plenty of space for imaginations to soar; we have no doubt Boo La La Halloween Ball will reach new heights.
  • New Band: Groove Essential, a fantastic band out of Indianapolis.
  • And a New Honor: Boo La La was named “Louisville’s Best Costume Party” by NFocus Magazine! We give full credit for this award to our fantastic guests and sponsors who bring such an incredible level of enthusiasm and creativity to the Ball each year.

Boo La La is Olmsted Parks Conservancy’s most important fundraiser as it raises critical funds to support our work in three key areas: historic restoration, environmental protection and community well-being.

Rarely do we stop to think about the resources necessary to keep the parks looking their best. It’s FREE to enter and use the Olmsted Parks, but they are certainly NOT FREE to keep healthy, beautiful and safe. While city tax dollars support the parks, they simply do not stretch far enough or adequate upkeep and improvements. for 26 years, with support from generous donors and volunteers, the Conservancy has worked to restore, enhance and forever protect our parks.

So climb aboard and tighten your seat belt, there is much to look foreword to in 2016! We don’t want this party-flight to take-off without you on board, so secure your sponsorship now! Your support will help help us continue to support our treasured Olmsted Parks and Parkways.
