An Evening with Bob Dylan A fixture of the American musical landscape since the sixties, Bob Dylan is still going strong today, bringing his Never Ending Tour’s 25th anniversary to the Louisville Palace Theatre on April 28. The Never Ending Tour originally began in 1988, and since then, Dylan has played roughly 100 dates a year for the entirety of the 1990s and the 2000s. His music—informed by themes of social unrest and civil rights—has assumed a renewed importance for many today, with

America’s changing social consciousness finding voice in his celebrated lyrics. Dylan’s multiple hits have helped shape not only American folk music, but also traditional and Christian rock, country, R&B, and blues, and now Louisville has the chance to take part in his musical history. The show will be held at 8 pm at the Louisville Palace Theatre. Tickets are $49.50 to $59.50, and can be ordered through Ticketmaster or by calling 502-583-4555.

Kentucky Derby Festival Kickoff

Archie Manning, legendary quarterback, will be the keynote speaker for the Kentucky Derby Festival’s 57th annual They’re Off! Luncheon on Friday, April 19. Manning will address approximately 1,500 Derby Festival supporters and patrons in attendance for this community tradition, which begins at 11:30 am in the Grand Ballroom of the Galt House East Hotel, site of the festive event since 1974. Manning is a former NFL quarterback, playing for the New Orleans Saints, then for the Houston Oilers and Minnesota Vikings. Football runs in the Manning genes - he is the father of current Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, current New York Giants

starting quarterback Eli Manning, and former Ole Miss receiver Cooper Manning. First held in 1957, the second year of the Derby Festival, the They’re Off! Luncheon serves as the time-honored kick-off to each year’s Festival. Manning joins Dick Vitale, Terry Bradshaw, Bill Walton, Greg Gumbel, Magic Johnson, Julius Erving, Larry King, Bob Costas, Robin Roberts, Cawood Ledford, Phil Simms and Howard Cosell in a long list of luminaries who have entertained They’re Off! Luncheon audiences for the past 57 years. This year’s luncheon will also feature the presentation of the Kentucky Derby Festival’s Volunteer of the Year Award and the AT&T Silver Horseshoe Award for service to the community. Tickets for the event cost $76 each or $608 for a table of eight and are available on a very limited basis. For tickets or more information, call (502) 584-FEST.

Thunder Over Louisville

Now in its 23rd year, America’s largest fireworks show continues to deliver a pyrotechnic spectacle like no other. Created as the opening ceremony to the Kentucky Derby Festival, it offers an explosive start to two entire weeks of celebration in Louisville and Southern Indiana. With an estimated average attendance of half a million people, it has become the largest annual event in the region, to say nothing of the country. Thunder is the nation’s largest annual fireworks event, and is also one of the top five air shows in the country. Waterfront Park, the Chow Wagon, and the North Great Lawn at Waterfront Park offer front-row seats to the show and open early in the morning to start the day’s festivities. The Thunder Air Show along the Ohio River usually starts at 3 pm, while the fireworks show begins at 9:30 pm and ends at 10 pm. Admission is free with a 2013 Pegasus pin. Public viewing areas stretch from 8th Street to Clay Street north of Main Street in

Kentucky, and along Riverside Drive from Ashland Park in Clarksville to Spring Street in Jeffersonville, Indiana. The show is so massive that it can be seen from almost anywhere in the downtown area. Viewing the show from the Southern Indiana side of the river, however, is less open. Jeffersonville, Indiana has changed over the last several years. The area between the Clark and Kennedy bridges will be very limited. To accommodate the crowds, more viewing areas have been developed between Fort and Pearl Street on Riverside Drive, east of the Kennedy Bridge. Visitors during Thunder should be prepared to wear comfortable shoes, as they will probably need to walk some distance. Attendees generally arrive as early as possible to secure the best viewing space, but even so, parking and traffic can be a headache. Luckily, TARC buses have expanded service and routes all day, and P.A.R.C. garages offer special event rates. The Louisville Metro Police Department provides a traffic plan which can help drivers get out of the snarl faster, capping off an exciting night with an easy route home.

Great Balloon Glow and BalloonFest

The Great BalloonFest is a collection of four great events that come together to create a single, cohesive ballooning experience that’s as much a part of Derby tradition as the horse race itself. The Great Balloon Race and Great Balloon Glow stand as the festival’s main events, though the Great Balloon Glimmer and Great Balloon Rush-Hour Race also attract tens of thousands of spectators to the Kentucky Exposition Center, Bowman Field, and other locations throughout Greater Louisville. As one of the most anticipated events of the Kentucky Derby Festival lineup, the Great Balloon Glow is an opportunity for spectators to interact with the pilots and see the balloons as they’re inflated in their race starting positions. The main highlight of the Glow, however, occurs when the balloons light up and rise a little off of the ground to music, creating a beautiful landscape of glowing balloons 10

WHiGL

set against the night sky. The next day, the Great Balloon Race sends dozens of colorful hot air balloons drifting above Louisville in a one-of-a-kind viewing experience. The event is choreographed to popular songs that emphasize the magic of the orbiting lights. The Great Balloon Glimmer is April 25 at 8:30 pm at Kroger’s Fest-a-Ville on the Waterfront. The Rush Hour Race is the following day, April 26, at 7 am at Bowman Field. The same day, the Glow will be held at the Kentucky Exposition Center, with gates opening at 6 pm. The Great Balloon Race is held early in the morning on April 27—7 am for those early risers—at Bowman Field. All Great BalloonFest events are free with a 2013 Pegasus Pin.

Kentucky Derby Festival Beerfest Louisville has recently seen a renewed focus on sustainability and buying local. In conjunction with the region’s already long history of producing high quality bourbon and spirits, this focus dovetails perfectly to bring Louisvillians and visitors the Kentucky Derby Festival’s newest event: BeerFest, a showcase for craft breweries. Regional and national breweries in Kentuckiana will offer samples of assorted craft beers. As a growing industry in Kentuckiana, craft- and microbreweries are more common, and their presence during the lead-up to the Kentucky Derby will present an opportunity for visitors to learn more about the tastes of Kentucky outside of bourbon.

The event will be held on Wednesday, May 1st, inside Kroger’s Fest-a-Ville on the Waterfront. Local craft beer companies being represented include Cumberland Brewery, West Sixth Brewing Company, Alltech Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company, Falls City Brewing Company, Sterling Beer, the New Albanian Brewing Company, Bluegrass Brewing Company, and Rivertown Brewing Company. International beers present at BeerFest include Blue Moon Brewing Company, Henry Wienhard’s, Batch 19, Redd’s Apple Ale, Upland Brewing Company, and more. Tickets to BeerFest cost $35 and include beer tastings, a sampling mug, and a BeerFest pin. BeerFest will be open from 5-9 pm and takes place in a tented venue at the Overlook inside Kroger’s Fest-a-Ville. Tickets are available at both American Founders Bank locations, or by calling (502) 584-FEST and online.

The Zombie Run

A shipment of C-894 has made its way to Louisville…and on April 21st, be prepared to run for your lives as a biochemical leak forces the city into an apocalyptic zombie outbreak. The Zombie Run is just like any other 5K, except, of course, for the addition of brainhungry zombies. Participants may register either as a human or zombie participant. Runners will wear a latex-free “life-balloon,” which the zombies will attempt to pop while chasing their victims throughout the course. Additionally, all registrations include an Apocalypse Survival Pack, complete with an official Zombie Run drawstring, t-shirt, headband, and reusable water bottle. At the starting line, runners will come across a flipped tanker, the source of the toxic compound. After the first kilometer, they’ll enter into a military-controlled apocalypse zone. Around kilometer 3, they’ll make it to a failing vaccination

hydration center. The final two kilometers are a free-forall charge towards freedom. Zombies are everywhere. Helicopters circle overhead and military personnel distribute face masks for safety during the final steps. Dead or alive, all runners will be allowed to complete the entire course and attend the Quarantine Finish Line Party, which will feature a local DJ, food trucks, a zombie makeover station, photo stations, and a merchandise booth. Human runners can register as an individual for $50 or as part of a team of four or more for $45 per runner. Zombies can register for $30, which includes gory, movie-quality makeup and zombie gear. Registration packets can be picked up April 19 and 20 at Fleet Feet Sports on Taylorsville Road, and the race itself will be held at half-past noon on Sunday, April 21st, at Iroquois Park.

Great Bed Races

Four co-workers build a bed on wheels, decorate it, dress in a ridiculous costume—and then race. That pretty much sums up the Kentucky Derby Festival Great Bed Races. The Great Bed Races is an event in which local company-sponsored employees in themed costumes push beds around a race track, competing for prizes. Each year, thousands of enthusiasts gather to cheer on more than 40 teams, while on-air personalities from WAVE TV anchor the live coverage from every angle, from the crowd to the pits. This year’s theme—to which all the bed entries will be adhering—is “Now That’s Entertainment.” The awards ceremony for the Great Bed Races recognizes winners in the following

categories: fastest course times, best decoration and entertainment, the “Cone Eater” award for most traffic cones mangled during the races, the best decorated, most entertaining, the "Worst New Course Record Time," and the people’s choice award. For the last category, fans can vote for their favorite bed for a dollar a vote. Half of the proceeds are donated to the Kentucky Derby Festival Foundation, and the other half are donated to a charity chosen by the winning bed team. The teams have an opportunity to showcase their costumes and bed in a pre-race parade, which begins at 6:30 pm. When racing begins at 7, beds have a great time navigating the course—although many do not make it intact through the half-lap run. The races take place on April 29th at Broadbent Arena, and admission is free with a 2013 Pegasus Pin.

Great Steamboat Race performed by the boat crews on-board, as well as onshore. Each boat is assigned two judges in addition to an overall event judge from the Derby Festival. The winner of the event will be awarded a set of silverplated antlers to replace the traditional gilded antlers that were presented to the winner in the past. The Awards Ceremony will take place immediately following the race at the Chow Wagon in Kroger’s Festa-Ville on the Waterfront. For the first time this year, Four Roses Bourbon will be providing a special bourbon tasting on the Belle of Cincinnati; tickets cost $75 and include food, cruise, and bourbon tasting. Tickets for the Belle of Louisville cost $130 and include food and drinks; Belle of Cincinnati tickets cost $55 and include dinner. The Great Steamboat Race will be held May 1st, and passenger tickets for each boat may be purchased by calling (502) 584-FEST. whigl.com | Your Guide to Louisville Since 1951 | April 17 - April 30, 2013 WHiGL 21

The steamboats are back for the Kentucky Derby Festival, and ready to race in true southern style. The Great Steamboat Race is an annual event taking place the Wednesday before the first Saturday of May, three days before the Kentucky Derby. This year’s lineup includes the Belle of Louisville, the Belle of Cincinnati, and newcomer the American Queen. The three competitors will tug, toot, and cruise their way into a victory not by being the first boat to cross the finish line at the Clark Memorial Bridge, but by being the vessel that accumulates the most points from performing a series of five tasks assigned to each competitor throughout the day and during the race. One of the tasks is a Calliope Contest between the ships; other tasks are
