This is one of the many Derby events that is inexpensive, fun for everyone, and doesn’t require a reservation. You and your family can enjoy the peaceful flow of the river while tantalizing your taste buds. The amount of unique food alone is appealing such as - brisket with Derby sauce, ribeye sandwiches, gyros, kabobs, funnel cakes, ice cream and even fried candy bars. That is just the tip of the iceberg, as plenty more interesting edibles will be available. You can spend the entire day feasting on carnival and ethnic foods at the Chow Wagon.
