Kentucky Derby Festival Great Balloon Race April 27th

This weekend brings about another renowned Kentucky Derby tradition, the U.S. Bank Kentucky Derby Festival Great Balloon Race. This event takes place on Saturday, April 27th at 7:00 a.m. Spectators can gather at Bowman Field and the fee is a 2013 Pegasus Pin.

Back in 1973 the Great Balloon Race featured a mere 7 balloons and flew an inaugural race from Iroquois Park. The race in 2011 had 31 participants and this year’s event promises to have even more. Families are encouraged to bring their picnic baskets, blankets, lawn chairs and whatever else makes for a comfortable sit during the festivities.

Early arrivals are welcomed to walk around and get a closer look at the participants and even chat with some of the pilots before they start preparing for take off.

The Great Balloon Race on April 27th is a colorful, family-friendly event that can be enjoyed for the cost of a Pegasus Pin, and this year offers even more vivid colors and new balloon designs. After the race families can enjoy the remaining day at the Waterfront Chow Wagon for more festival fun.
