LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A couple of weeks after Councilwoman Barbara Shanklin was allowed to keep her seat on the Metro Council, she held her annual event bringing community members together.
Shanklin hosted the annual Newburg Community Days, a celebration where old and new friends of Petersburg Park come together and celebrate.
The neighborhood has celebrated the festival for more than 50 years.
“We’ve had one reunion after another right under this gazebo -- people who haven’t seen each other in 5-10 years. It’s been a lot of fun,” Shanklin said.
The celebration wraps up on Sunday.
