First Saturday in May is Derby Day

Kentucky Derby Race Churchill DownsSince 1875, the first Saturday in May Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky is the site of the Kentucky Derby. You can compare the celebrating before the race in Louisville to Mardi Gras. 

The city hosts a hot-air balloon race, there's fireworks, steamboat races, and the Pink Out of the Kentucky Oaks Race the day before the Derby.  The Kentucky Derby is the ultimate excuse to party.
