SUMMER FESTIVAL TO FEATURE COACHES, PLAYERS, RAFFLES
The annual gathering down at Captain's Quarters used to be known as the Cardinal Caravan. Someone in marketing must have had a brainstorm or maybe the St. Louis baseball team (who has a similarly named event) may have protested..whatever the reasoning...the event has been re-named Cardinals Summer Festival and it will take place down by the Ohio River this afternoon/evening at the restaurant off River Road.
Food, beverage, inflatables, free schedules, coaches, players, raffles, probably Sean Moth and sweltering heat all in store for UofL fans as the fall sports season draws near.

No such travelling that I know of for 2016 has been announced yet. Maybe that's another reason why they could have changed the name. They did try concept this a few weeks back at the UofL Golf Club in Simpsonville. Thunder storms were expected, they came and the event was cancelled in advance.
It matters not, I suppose, what this gathering is called. Goodbye Caravan, hello Summer Festival. The structure and purpose remains the same...to get the coaches and players out to talk to, shake hands with and pose for pictures with the fans.
Always a good thing.
