Special Thunder Over Louisville Packages Going Fast
From where will you watch North America’s largest fireworks show and largest airshow? Galt House Hotel announces special packages for Thunder Over Louisville, but they’re going fast. It’s the kickoff to the Kentucky Derby Festival, the two week party leading up to the Kentucky Derby.
This year’s theme is “A Star-Spangled Blast.” People are encouraged to wear red, white and blue to the April 21st event.
Organizers say this year’s event may just set the record for aircraft. There will be a large number of Marine aircraft, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Marine Corps. About 100 aircraft are expected to take part in the show, including several WWII-era planes, some from private collections.
Marine Corps veteran, Kentucky native, and Congressional Medal of Honor recipient Sgt. Dakota Meyer is the Thundernator. As Thundernator, he’ll hit the button to launch the fireworks. Some 700,000 people will flock to the waterfront to see the big event.
This year, you can get a front row seat with a room at the Galt House Hotel, and get a second night for a penny. The “Friday Night Penny Night” packages vary in price, but all include six wristbands for hotel access and one parking pass.
