The 137th running of the Kentucky Derby, the beloved American horseracing tradition, is scheduled Saturday, May 7th with post time at 6:24pm (ET). Even if you are not going to Churchill Downs, you and your friends can still get into the spirit by organizing a Kentucky Derby Theme Party.
This event is a prime opportunity to host a party because in addition to watching the race itself, there are several derby traditions that you can enjoy in your own home like drinking Mint Juleps, eating Kentucky Derby Pie and wearing Kentucky Derby Hats.
For help planning your party, we just updated our Kentucky Derby Theme Party page. Here you can watch a video of last year's race, can get some ideas for Kentucky Derby hats and can pick up some great derby recipes.
