This Saturday marks the official kick-off of the Derby Festival with Thunder Over Louisville! Hundreds of thousands of people will gather long the Ohio River, in both Louisville and Southern Indiana, to watch one of the world’s largest airshows and fireworks presentations.
If you’re looking for someone to guide you through the Derby events and Louisville attractions, you’ve come to the right spot. Not only is this the right spot, this is one of the best times to discover things to do in Louisville. Over the next two weeks, Louisville is going to shine with events, parties, contests, shows, and all things “Derby” — culminating in the running of the Kentucky Derby.
The Derby Festival is two weeks of events, competition, parties, and fun. There is (as mentioned) Thunder Over Louisville, the nation’s largest fireworks presentation, the Pegasus Parade, the Great Steamboat Race, and of course, the “fastest two minutes in sports.”
Whether you’re planning a trip to Louisville for the Derby, or just wanting to see the sights and sounds that make this city so special, we’ve put together some great tours to help introduce you to all the things to do in Louisville.
