Derby Week. In name, Kentucky’s first Saturday in May is international. Run for the Roses.
Kentucky Derby history is stirred to life in a rush of Bluegrass springtime. A pageant that comes to us in shades of green, golden rod yellows, white, black and stone fences and roses of course. Among the fixtures? Juleps, who’s who celebrities and women prancing about in immodest hats.
Parties pop up like mushrooms, the biggest, loudest, longest socials possible, all arranged around a 6 o’clock call to the post at Churchill Downs.
