Home of the time-honored Kentucky Derby, held each year on the first Saturday in May, Louisville is a great springtime destination. In addition to the actual race, Louisville bursts into celebration during the weeks preceding the Derby with the annual Kentucky Derby Festival. The Festival offers something for everyone with over 70 events, including Thunder Over Louisville, the largest fireworks spectacular in North America.

A few other fun spring events in Louisville include the Humana Festival of New American Plays in March and April, the annual Cherokee Triangle Art Fair in April and, in May, Abbey Road on the River, the largest Beatles tribute festival in America.
