Derby Days

140th Kentucky Derby

Louisvillian’s are counting down the days until Derby festivities begin! Well, they won’t have to wait much longer activities are starting this week. Tickets are for sale online and Pegasus Pins  can be purchased from a variety of locations.

17kydf8095v1_pinhero_both-220x120If you purchase a Pegasus Pin you will gain a memento, admission to almost 30 events, and you could even win one of the weekly prizes or a new Honda CR-V!  The pin gives you admission to a number of the most popular Derby month events, including some of my personal favorites like Thunder Over Louisville, Chow Wagon, all of the Balloon events, and a number of concerts on the waterfront.

Perhaps you don’t see yourself spending the next month at local – primarily outdoor – events, that’s fine! I feel your instinct to avoid humidity, crowds, and extra expenses. However, when there are so many interesting, fun, and sometimes strange activities going on in your town you better make it to at least one! If you’re tired of all the run of the mill festivals and concerts there are plenty of other options.  You can watch people in costumes race decorated beds,   send over 30,000 rubber ducks down the Ohio River, or even have a happy hour at the Waterfront with your friends and dog!
