As a Louisville native, I grew up believing Oaks and Derby days were both holidays. Derby season kicks off in late April with the two-week Kentucky Derby Festival. A highlight of the race weekend is finding out what celebrities made the trek to Louisville for Derby Eve parties and the race itself. The Louisville Courier-Journal has great Derby coverage, including pictures of celebrities who attended Friday night’s parties. The Lexington Herald-Leader has a lot of Derby coverage as well. I hope the race goes off OK despite the rainy weather today.
