Yeah, it does. We have lots of activities leading up to it. There are chow wagons set up downtown and one day they have bed races. There is a balloon race and we have a huge fireworks display called Thunder over Louisville. Then on thursday before Derby we have the Pegasus parade, then friday is the Oaks then Saturday is Derby day.
DQ, I just wanted to let you know I may not be on as much for the next few days. My mother gave me her cold (so nice of her to share). :P I feel bad, like I'm bailing on you after only just becoming a mod. :( I'll get on as much as I can, though.
