Redsfest 2016.

It was Redsfest 2016 Saturday at Duke Energy Convention Center. This is the third straight year we’ve been to Redsfest (2014 and 2015). We always enjoy walking around Redsfest. It’s just a really fun event…

As soon as we walked in, we ran into Reds pitcher Raisel Iglesias…

Did you notice how awesome his shoes were? Both Genifer and I want a pair of those!

And we met the Louisville Bats mascot, Buddy Bat

We saw Reds pitcher Michael Lorenzen…

And we saw Reds catcher Tucker Barnhart in the same place we saw him at last year’s Redsfest

A Lego exhibit is coming to the Louisville Slugger Museum in Kentucky…

We saw Reds favorite Corky Miller…

There was a taco cooking contest going on…

We got these awesome Redsfest draw-string backpacks…

We stopped and listened to The Mistics…

As we were leaving Redsfest, we ran into Reds outfielder Scott Schebler…

It was another great Redsfest. It’s always such a fun event to wander around. 🙂

Afterwards, we stopped at Americano for some guacamole, BBQ chicken wings and onion rings. It was a wonderful end to a great afternoon downtown.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

On our way across downtown to Redsfest, we stopped to admire some of the spectacular holiday trees around downtown. This beautiful tree was in the atrium of The Westin on Fifth Street…

And of course, they chopped down yet another beautiful, huge old pine tree to stand on the Square for the next month before being discarded… :/

I don’t know why the one on the Square really bothers me. And there was this beautiful tree in Carew Tower…

Downtown sure is beginning to look festive. 🙂
