Well, I am sure everyone knows about the Kentucky Derby (the horse race) that happens every May. Well from March until the Derby, every weekend there are special events that go on to lead up to the big horse race. They have balloon glows, Chow Wagon, big marathons, the Pegasus Parade, and many more. The most popular one is Thunder Over Louisville. It is the biggest firework show in the country. Everyone comes down to the waterfront and hang out all day until the big show at night. People even come down as early as three in the morning. There are games, tons of food, and its just a fun atmosphere. This year there were estimated 800,000 people so it was so crowded! Here are some pictures of the fun event:
