Fred's Facts

“There should be great numbers of trees with a spread of branches and standing in relation to one another that could not be expected to be attained in less time than forty years.” -- 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. The 2016 Boo La La Halloween Ball which has a fabulous new venue and band!

  • 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
  • Live music by Groove Essential, a fantastic band out of Indianapolis
  • 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 and it raises critical funds to support our work in three key areas: historic restoration, environmental protection and community well-being.

The 18 Frederick Law Olmsted Parks offer so much: playgrounds and spraygrounds for children to swing and slide; miles of trails for hiking and cycling; picnic shelters for family get-togethers; wildflowers drawing in honey bees and song birds; thousands of beautiful trees giving relief from the heat of the city; and green spaces for all to enjoy.

Rarely do we stop to think about the resources necessary to keep the parks pristine. 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 our work to restore, enhance and forever protect our treasured Olmsted Parks and Parkways.
