Whether you care about the horse races or not, the Kentucky Derby is a great excuse to do something fun and different this weekend.
The Kentucky Derby horse race is a held annually in Louisville, Kentucky on the first Saturday in May. The tradition of dressing up and attending the event has spread from the South all the way up to Boston.
