LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Derby Festival will return to offering live and in-person events this year, though there are some changes to the schedule.
One of the most noticeable is the festival’s founding event, the Pegasus Parade, which will be held on a Sunday for the first time instead of a Thursday.
Kentucky Derby Festival President and CEO Matt Gibson said in a statement that it’s an effort to make it easier for people to attend.
Officials announced the dates for dozens of festival events from mid-March through Derby week. Some events will have different dates than in the past. Many will keep to tradition, including Thunder Over Louisville.
