First weekend in May
May 1, 2017
I was born in Kentucky and there are some things that every Kentuckian learns young. The first Saturday is in fact “The Kentucky Derby.” This is what is called “Derby Week” and lots of activities and celebrations lead up to the big day. What do you do on Derby Day? Do you make a fresh batch of mint juleps? Do you wear a fancy hat? Do you go to the Kentucky Derby or do you attend a local party or just watch it in the comfort of your own home? It is quite a special day. Happy Derby Week.
