It's hard to be from Louisville this week

ADVERTISEMENT

Growing up in Louisville Kentucky you always looked forward to the Kentucky Derby Festival. Most people think the KY Derby is a 3 minute horse race the first Saturday in May. That is only partially correct. That is the main event-but it is the 9th race out of 10 that day. But for most Louisvillians the KY Derby is only the climax to the busiest week of the year.

Last Saturday was Thunder over Louisville-the Biggest Fireworks display and air show in the country on the banks of the Ohio River.

Tomorrow (Saturday) is the Great Balloon Race and the Mini Marathon (I've run the 13 miles twice). I have two of my three brothers running tomorrow.

Next week there are daily events including The Run for the Ros'e (a race for Louisville's waitresses and waiters), the Great Steamboat Race on the River, the Pegasus Parade and many other events.

I love living in Ringgold and the TN Valley, but this one week out of the year my heart really goes back to "My Old Kentucky Home!"

But.....JFest is coming and then Faith and Family Night at Riverbend-so....I'll get over the homesickness real quick!
