The Big Fireworks Show
Rated as one of the top 100 events in North America, the Derby Festival's Opening Ceremonies is truly a sight to behold. And each year, more than 500,000 eager thrill-seekers do just that. The day-long event kicks off the two exciting weeks of celebration that are part of the annual Kentucky Derby Festival. The Big Fireworks Show dazzles the crowd with more than 100 planes, aerobatics, daring sky diving and breathtaking stunts.
When it gets dark, the fireworks will feature the latest in pyrotechnic power from Zambelli Internationale, America's "first family of fireworks". Six barges assemble on both sides of the 2nd Street Bridge to form the stage from which the fireworks spectacular ignites. The breathtaking and mind-numbing 28-minute show includes Louisville Thunder's signature one-mile "waterfall" effect off the bridge, making the fireworks seem to rain down forever. And in the crowd's memory of the show, it does!
