It's Derby Week in Louisville! Today is the best weather day yet.
We headed down to the riverfront for some of the festivities leading up to the great steamboat race. (It won't be the same without the Delta Queen, the historic steamboat that has been Decommissioned)
There were derby hats, such as the one shown here with horse and jockey on top. There were also lots of costumes, many worn by people competing in the various races and competitions.
This picture shows someone competing in the " hamster" race.
But this last photo is the best of all, taken in the Derby "Chow Wagon"
(But don't worry, it was fried in olive oil)
Have a great Derby and keep your fingers crossed for good weather and a safe ride for everyone.
