I was lucky enough to get our group in on the early Derby parade float preview at the Kentucky Fair and Expo center. When we arrived, the kids received a map to get stamped at destination.  The room was filled with beautiful parade balloons of a horse, lightning bug, pegasus, opera singer, and horseshoe. There were parade floats with animals, beach scene, flowers, horses, and instruments. After seeing a preview of the parade, I can't wait to see what the full experience will be like on Thursday! 

The stage had fun activities ad music that the kids were really happy to participate in. There were booths that had giveaways, coloring books, frisbees, crowns, and games to handout for children to take home. Once we were finished with the preview, and the kids had collected all of their stams on the map, we went to the prize table and the kids got to pick out a toy! All the members enjoyed the private tour!  Going before it opened to the public, made it very special and more enjoyable. My kids had worn themselves out and fell asleep as soon as we left!
