Making the Most of Derby Week
Tips to have fun around Louisville
by MIKE HALL, Owner/Agent/Broker
We are just a few days away from the Derby and that means Louisville is abuzz with activities! In the days leading up to the big event here are some tips for having fun around town:
1.) Get your Pegasus Pin! This pin is your pass to admission or discounts on many Derby-related activities and merchandise. The pin can be purchased at many gas stations and grocery stores.
2.) Shop! Many local retailers have special pricing and merchandise to get you to the Derby in style. It’s not too late for your blazer, dress or, most importantly, hat!
3.) Eat, drink and be merry! What’s the Derby without sampling a local bourbon, craft beer or mint julep? And don’t forget to stop for a Kentucky Hot Brown or some Benedictine.
4.) Pick your pony! Take a moment to Google the odds and decide where to place your bets. Watching the race is a whole lot more fun when you have someone to root for.
5.) Get your collectibles before they’re gone! Check local party supply stores for your collectible Derby glasses, special edition liquor bottles, t-shirts and many other items.
6.) Check out downtown and the waterfront! There are tons of concerts and activities planned for the downtown and waterfront areas beginning as early as Thursday.
Having fun throughout the week will get you ready for the fastest two minutes in sports!
