Most consider the Kentucky Derby to be the most exciting 2 minutes in sports and I would have to agree. To me, Derby makes it the best weekend to be in Louisville. I've always loved going to Churchill Downs or a Derby party. Everyone brings food, like sandwiches, meatballs or 7 layer bean dip so you won't be leaving hungry. You also cannot forget about the Mint Juleps! Also have a bookie for everyone to place bets on all the races throughout the day.
Between races backyard games are always going on with Corn hole being one of my favorites.
The three things every party needs is food, entertainment and a bookie. Good luck!!
