Friday
It's KY Derby Festival time!  Head to the Balloon Glow tonight at the KY Expo Center. Admission is free with your Pegasus Pin (remember the $8 parking fee).  The gates open at 6pm and the glow begins at 9pm.  You know, just you and 50,000 friends. It's one of the most popular Kentucky Derby Festival events!

Saturday
The Parent-Teacher Store and Toys too! is excited to start carrying Breyer Horses.  They are celebrating with some free paint-your-own horse crafts and giveaways at their store on Saturday from 1-4pm.  

Celebrate Derby time with crafts at The Diaper Fairy Cottage (open 9am-4pm) - yes, they have more than just diapers!  They will have two craft stations to make Kentucky Derby hats and Riverboats out of newspaper. They'll also have a Derby week picture contest for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate! It is free but they are also accepting donation for charity.


Sunday
Head to Indiana for the  “Indiana Frontier Experience” at Historic Tunnel Mill in Charlestown 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. (also on Saturday).  Encounter the pioneers and settlers that carved homes out of the wilderness, the Native-Americans who lived there, the tradesmen who brought their skills, plus surveyors, farmers, politicians and river-men of the period. Enjoy a full cross-section of early American life in the Indiana Territory with demonstrations, craftsmen, native camps, stump speeches, battles, bare-knuckle boxing, and even a Sunday morning church service! An $8 parking fee benefits the John Work House restoration. Concessions will be available.

Have a fabuLOUs weekend,
Stephanie
