Recognized by Louisville Magazine as Louisville’s “Best Event,” the 40th annual U.S. Bank Kentucky Derby Festival Great Balloon Race came together with the 21st annual U.S. Bank Kentucky Derby Festival Great Balloon Glow and other events to create the U.S. Bank Great BalloonFest.

Taking place the weekend before the Kentucky Derby, these five events attracted tens of thousands of spectators to the Kentucky Exposition Center and other locations throughout Greater Louisville.
