LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)—The first ever ticketed concert in the new Parklands of Floyds Fork took place on Friday evening.
The event raised money for the park and featured America’s maters of Bluegrass and Newgrass with performances by Kentucky’s own Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, a 14 time Grammy winner. The concert began at 9 p.m.
The event was held in a section of the park that was visible from I-64. While there have been free concerts at the park in the past, this one was big fundraiser.
The park sits on 4,000 acres and is 20 miles long across east and southeast Jefferson County.
