The official Kentucky Derby Festival kickoff event on Saturday, April 13, is expected to draw an estimated 650,000 spectators.
AARP will have a display area located inside the South Great Lawn in Waterfront Park, where volunteers will greet members and their families with a special gift. Other prime viewing areas include River Road and the southern Indiana shoreline.
In the evening, the 30th annual pyrotechnic spectacular will erupt in front of hundreds of thousands of fans from across the country.
The air show begins at 3 p.m., followed by the fireworks show at 9:30 p.m., which will launch from barges in the Ohio River.
