KDF Fashion Show & Thunder Preview Party
We’re in the middle of March Madness and things are certainly heating up as UL and UK prepare to face off in the Sweet Sixteen this weekend. While most of greater Louisville is abuzz with this pairing, another great sporting event is just around the corner: the Kentucky Derby! If you’re new to the community, you’ll quickly learn that there is no experience like the Kentucky Derby Festival.
Over nearly 70 events make up the Kentucky Derby Festival. While Thunder Over Louisville is the official start to the festival, there are a few Kentucky Derby Festival preview events coming up. Macy’s Spring Fashion Show will take place this Thursday, March 27th. Guests will enjoy cocktails being served at 5:30 p.m. with dinner following at 7:00 p.m. The fashion show is set to hit the runway at 8:00 p.m.
The show will include the latest Derby fashions, spring attire and accessories. Many local boutiques will be featured. Apricot Lane, Boutique Serendipity, Collections Boutique, Crush Boutique, Dress & Dwell, Olivia & Co., Pink Julep, Rodeo Drive, Sunny Daize, The Tangerine Closet, Cargo and Caden will all be featured. Dillard’s, GUESS? Inc., Macy’s and Old Navy will also be on display. Louisville’s own Christine Fellingham is the Producer and Styling Consultant for this year’s Spring Fashion Show. After working as a fashion editor in New York City, she is back in Louisville as the fashion editor for the Courier-Journal.
Macy's Spring Fashion Show will be held at the Horseshoe Casino. Grab a group of friends and purchase a table for ten for $590.00 to $690.00. Individual seats at tables range from $59.00 to $69.00. Preferred table seating is first come, first serve. Lounge seating is $35.00 per person and includes wine and appetizers. All tickets include a 2014 Fashion Show pin.
The next pre-Derby Festival event will be Thursday, April 3rd. McDonald’s is sponsoring the Thunder Preview Party. This great event allows you the opportunity to view some of the planes featured in the Thunder Air Show. Children will love the opportunity to get close to the planes and meet the pilots. Bring your camera, this will be a great photo op! Helicopter rides will be available, along with a Coast Guard exhibit. Don’t forget to check out the interactive family area at the party.
Admission is free with a 2014 Pegasus Pin or a McDonald’s Thunder Funder cup. The Thunder Preview Party will be at Bowman Field, located at 2815 Taylorsville Rd. Check out this event April 3rd from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.
