Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - Organizers are setting up a valet service at Waterfront Park but it's not for cars.  Instead, it's for bicycles and skateboards.
   
It's one of the initiatives the Waterfront Development Corporation took this year to become greener.
   
They are also encouraging people to recycle and they will save all cooking grease to be used later for bio-diesel fuel.
 “We are providing a wonderful free event to the community, but we also don't want to do that not being cognizant of the footprint and the impact that this event will create in the community,” said Ashley Smith, event manager at Waterfront Development Corporation.
   
The event is also looking to be green in the future.
   
Within five years they hope to avoid using plastic water bottles.
