It's the same way with the Derby the festivities start with Thunder over Louisville two week before and they have hot air balloon races, a mini marathon, a parade, steam boat races, chow wagon, concerts, you name it the two week leading up to the main race. Oaks day is Friday which has also become a pretty big race with the fillies for the lillies. I honestly doubt we'll actually ever go to the derby we've been to Thunder a few times but it's SOOOOO crowded and traffic is just terrible it makes the event less appealing. We normally watch the main race on TV though.I've never been to the Derby but watch it on TV every year.
I'm kind of in the same boat with the Indy 500. I've only been once and that was when I didn't even live here! This year I think I want to go to some of the festivities leading up to it, if not the actual race. (Indy 500 events will start this weekend, culminating with the race Memorial Day weekend.) There's a LOT going on. I think it's time I partcipated!
Just rent it to her for the retail price.I got a call from some lady last night wantin' to know if she could rent one of our ladies hats.
Hello, retail store, we don't rent clothes, be as dumb as callin' Old Navy and seein' if you could rent a pair of jeans.
Just rent it to her for the retail price.
If she brings it back good for her.
I've only lived here for 3, but I've lived in Kentucky my whole life. I've yet to see a Derby at Churchill. I've been to Churchill to see races, and we went to Keeneland a lot when I lived in Lexington, but I've never seen a live Derby.Anyone ever been or plan to watch it?
I have lived in Louisville for 8 years I think and have never been but it's such a big deal I wondered if others have been.
Thunder is amazing. I went to my first Thunder this year. You can't find a better fireworks show on this side of the globe (I think for a few years, it was the biggest show in the world, now it's the biggest fireworks show in North America). I'm not even a huge fireworks fan, but I was awestruck. You honestly cannot describe it, you just have to see it.I am a huge fireworks fanatic. Ive been to the worlds fireworks championship that lasts a week in Montreal. But Thunder is on my to do list. Ive been wanting to go to it for years and years.
