Kentucky Derby Festival Reveals 2021 Plans For Thunder, Other Events

LOUISVILLE, Ky.-- This year's Thunder Over Louisville fireworks and air show will be a lot different thanks to the pandemic.

The Kentucky Derby Festival announced the April 17th show will be spectator-free and not held at the waterfront. There will be airplanes and fireworks, but the show will be "city-wide."  

The Pegasus Parade will also happen, but it won't be held on Broadway.

The organization plans to release more details about the events at a later date.

Also, this year's Derby Festival Marathon and Mini-Marathon will be both virtual and in-person, with the in-person option taking place over several days with staggering start times.

Last year's Derby Festival events were postponed and later cancelled because of the pandemic.
