Kentucky Oaks

Held the Friday before the Derby, the “Lillies for the Fillies” race is considered by some to be among the most popular horse races in American horse-racing society due to its high attendance. Unlike the Kentucky Derby, in which both fillies and colts participate, the Oaks is run exclusively by fillies. As its nickname suggests, the official flower of the Kentucky Oaks is the stargazer lily. Guests typically wear pink to the Oaks, both in honor of the flower and to show their support for cancer survivors. From hats to handkerchiefs, suits to sundresses, sunglasses to stilettos, Oaks guests are “tickled pink” to show their support for the cause. As with the Kentucky Derby, betting is an integral part of the Oaks experience. The top ten frontrunners for the Kentucky Oaks this year are Beholder, Rose to Gold, Unlimited Budget, Dreaming of Julia, Emollient, Close

Hatches, Live Lively, Flashy Gray, Princess of Sylmar, Fiftyshadesofhay, and Midnight Lucky. Gates open at 8 am on May 3rd, and the Oaks runs at 5:45 pm. Prices vary depending on seating, with tickets starting at $25.

Kentucky Derby

Whether you know it as the Run for the Roses, the Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports, the Chance of a Lifetime, or just by its official name, the Kentucky Derby is here and more exciting than ever. The Derby is a 1.25 mile race for three-year-old thoroughbreds and draws an average of 150,000 visitors each year, including residents, out-oftowners, celebrities, presidents, and even members of royal families. There are many great Kentucky Derby traditions that have developed over the years. The most famous include the singing of "My Old Kentucky Home" as the horses come onto the track before the race, the Garland of Roses that is placed on the winner’s back immediately after the race in the Winner’s Circle, and the gold Derby Trophy. The image of women’s Derby hats—ranging from elegant to silly—has become an iconic symbol of the Derby, maybe even more so than some official traditions. One tradition that shouldn’t be overlooked is betting on the outcome, which provides fun competition between friends even without a winning ticket. This year, the top ten frontrunners for the Kentucky Derby are Orb, Verrazano, Goldencents, Java’s War,

Overanalyze, Revolutionary, Lines of Battle, Vyjack, Will Take Charge, and Itsmyluckyday. Gates open at 8 am on May 4th, with the Derby running at 6:20 pm. Prices vary depending on seating, with tickets starting at $40. They can be purchased online.

Charlotte’s Web

In this beautiful, knowing play about friendship, the audience at Kentucky Center's StageOne is introduced to Wilbur, a runty pig yearning for affection, who befriends a barn spider named Charlotte. Wilbur feels alone and disconnected until Charlotte enters his life, offering conversation and companionship strong enough to transcend species. When an old sheep delivers a bleak message regarding Wilbur’s fate, Charlotte conspires to increase Wilbur’s value in the eyes of the community, using unorthodox methods. She begins spinning words such as “terrific,” “radiant,” and “some pig” into her web, reasoning that, once famous, Wilber will live out his years on the farm in luxury and respect. Her campaign proves to be victorious, but her final, ultimate act of friendship and love is trusting Wilbur to care for her egg sac—what she refers to as her “magnum opus”—and, in doing so, ensures

that the pig who ached for love is never alone again. This production of Charlotte’s Web— based upon the book by E.B. White—has been adapted by Joseph Robinette for the stage. The book upon which the Kentucky Center’s StageOne play is based is a perennial favorite, named “the best American children’s book of the past two hundred years” by The Children’s Literature Association and recommended for ages four and up. While the play ends on a hopeful note, the end of Charlotte and Wilbur’s friendship might be upsetting for very young viewers. Performances of Charlotte’s Web are May 11th and 18th at 11 am and 2 pm. All performances are held at the Kentucky Center’s Bomhard Theatre. Tickets can be purchased for $14.75 at the box office, by calling 502-584-7777, or online.

Belle of Louisville Summer Schedule There’s something special about boarding a steamboat, and taking a cruise on the oldest operating river steamer in the USA is no exception. The steamboat known today as the Belle of Louisville was first named the Idlewild. Built in 1914 at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to serve as a ferry while a bridge was being built between Memphis, Tennessee, and West Memphis, Arkansas, she was also outfitted for packet (freight) and excursion trade, and her versatility led to her longevity. In 1948, she was renamed the Avalon, and for the next thirteen years she “tramped” America’s waterways, moving from town to town and offering short excursion cruises. After being purchased at auction and brought to her new permanent home in 1962, she was finally renamed the Belle of Louisville. The Belle of Louisville has the distinction of being the last operating river steamboat built as a packet, and much of her equipment and structure today are original. Her engines were built in the 1890s, and the 7’-diameter maple wheel in the pilot house is the only one that has ever steered the boat. While changes have taken place over the years, and she is now exclusively an excursion vessel, she is still steam-powered and paddlewheel-driven. The Belle is one of the nation’s celebrated National Historic Landmarks and a testament to nearly 100 years of river history. The Belle will run regular excursion cruises throughout the summer, and will offer afternoon cruises on weekends in September

and October. Thursday and Friday night cruises, and Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoon cruises are suitable outings for the whole family. Additionally, some special events—such as Fireworks Cruises on July 3rd and 4th and the Father’s Day Bourbon and BBQ cruise—add a special flavor to the season. Thursday and Friday evening cruises board at 6:30 and cruise from 7 – 9 pm. Friday and Saturday afternoon cruises board at 11:30 am and cruise from 12 – 2 pm. Sunday afternoon cruises board at 1:30 and cruise from 2 – 4 pm. Times can differ for special events. Most cruises offer an optional buffet meal. For sightseeing only (without the buffet), tickets are $21 adults, $20 seniors (ages 60+), and $12 children (ages 3 – 12). Tickets with a lunch buffet are $32 adults, $31 seniors, and $22 children. Tickets with a dinner buffet are $42 adults, $41 seniors, and $26 children. Prices could differ for special events. The Belle’s sister boat, the riverboat Spirit of Jefferson, also offers a variety of cruises throughout the year. Call 502-574-2992 or (toll free) 866-832-0011, or check out www.belleoflouisville.org for information or to make a reservation. And put the Belle’s 100th Birthday Festival on your calendar now – October 15th – 19th, 2014. It will be a one-of-a-kind experience in American history, and is not to be missed!

Pegasus Parade

The oldest Kentucky Derby Festival event, the Pegasus Parade, will wind down Broadway from Campbell to 9th Street on Thursday, May 2nd. The event features colorful floats, marching bands, giant inflatable cartoon characters, equestrians, and celebrities. This year’s grand marshals are University of Louisville’s Men's and Women's Basketball Cardinals, who will lead the parade throughout the downtown area. The parade will also feature the UofL Marching Band as its opening act, along with cheerleaders and the pep squad. This year’s theme is “Now, That’s Entertainment!” Floats and inflatables use the theme as a guide, and will compete for various awards based on originality, eye appeal, theme representation, animation, attention to detail, and enthusiasm. Marching bands use the theme to guide their musical selection, and it serves as the basis for costume and concept design for the other marching units. The 2013 parade contains more than twelve floats, with inflatable character balloons such as “Otto the Auto,” “Louie the Lightning Bug,” “Peggy Bank (the Pegasus),” and more. Led by the “Peggy Bank” inflatable Pegasus balloon, the parade marches west

on Broadway for seventeen blocks and lasts approximately two hours. More than 90% of the parade route offers free public viewing. Tickets for the Parade are on sale now online or by calling the Derby Festival Hotline at (502) 584-FEST. Ticket prices are $9 for bleacher seats, $11 chair seating, and $26 review stand seats. Of course, with so much of the route available to free viewing, price should be no impediment to catching one of the Kentucky Derby Festival’s most cherished events.

Buy Local Fair

Locally-owned businesses are unique enterprises that are vital to the Louisville Metro community, and on Saturday, May 11th, the 5th Annual Buy Local Fair will give residents and visitors the chance to reinvest their dollars in one-of-a-kind items produced right here in the city. The Louisville Independent Business Alliance (LIBA), along with Grasshoppers Distribution, will host the event at the Louisville Water Tower from 2 8 pm. The mission of the Buy Local Fair is to provide a venue encouraging cooperation between two of Louisville’s emergent local economies: the local farm-to-table movement and locally-produced art and craft. The Fair hopes to afford both economies interaction with already-existing patrons of the other, and to showcase the unique beauty and artistic foundations of locally-produced goods. To this end, the Fair will host a variety of local businesses, musicians, artists and craftspeople, chefs, community organizers, and farmers, all of which represent locally-owned, independent businesses. Featured events include concerts, a cook-off between last year’s reigning champions (the chefs from Lilly’s Kentucky Bistro) and up-and-coming

restaurateurs (Milkwood’s chef staff), a farmers market, an art and craft market, a craft beer tent, and a children’s area. A recent study of Louisville-area businesses shows that for every $100 spent at locally-owned, independent businesses, $55 is reinvested locally, whereas only $14 is reinvested when that same money is spent at a national chain. The Buy Local Fair serves multiple purposes: it creates jobs for locals, conserves energy and resources for a better environment, and a multiplicity of independent retailers creates greater diversity of products available to shoppers. All of these are good reasons to visit the Buy Local fair, but the best reason of all is to have fun shopping. From 2 - 6 pm, the Water Tower will feature an H2O Kids Zone, and the craft beer tent will be set up from 2 - 8 pm. The Water Tower will offer guided tours of the tower and steam engine at 3 and 4 pm, and attendees can catch the cooking competition from 5 - 6 pm. At 6:30 pm, headlining entertainer Nerves Junior will take the stage. Admission is free, and parking is $5 per vehicle.
