Talk Derby To Me…

I’m not sure if you’re aware, but here in Louisville, KY, on the first Saturday in May, we hold this little event/party called THE KENTUCKY DERBY. And it’s here again. This weekend. It’s kind of a big deal. And I’m home (meaning I’m living in KY, not CA, like the past 4 years).

The Derby Festival lasts for 3 weeks. It starts with Thunder Over Louisville, a HUGE fireworks show, and includes events like the Pegasus Parade, the Great Steamboat Race, and the ever-famous Chow Wagon. That’s right, people. That’s right.
And it’s going to be fantastic. F’ing fantastic. If y’all want to come down and hang, you let me know. I’ll be here. I’ll even make you a Mint Julip. ; )
I’ve been prepping all week because the entire city shuts down for it and nobody works tomorrow (Oaks Day) soooo I’ve had to get a lot of stuff done in three and half days, which is why you haven’t heard from me all week. Sorry ’bout that. Images 1, 2, 3, and 4. Cinco de Mayo today, Oaks Day tomorrow, Derby on Saturday… Go Baby Go!
