As the opening show for the famous Kentucky Derby, Thunder Over Louisville is back in 2023!
This is the largest annual fireworks show in North America, and certainly one of the most impressive.
It will take place on April 22nd and will have a huge fireworks display, set to a track of some popular songs from the last year. The fireworks have been done by Pyro experts Zambelli Fireworks since 1991, and they are regularly invited to huge festivals and events in the USA to dazzle crowds.
The Kentucky Derby Festival first took place between 1935-1937, then restarted in 1956-Present. It takes place to celebrate the Kentucky Derby.
There will also be a Thunder VIP rooftop party, (separate purchase required) which includes a rooftop viewing of the spectacular fireworks and air show, a bar with specialist drinks, private bathrooms, VIP tent access and a parking pass if four VIP tickets are purchased.
The air show which will take place during the day is extensive, and includes a huge list of aircraft which you can view here.
Provided by Ford, a carnival will also be available, with a family fun zone, face painting, food stalls, bouncy castles, and many more games and activities to take part in.

The way the ticketing works is slightly different, to enter Thunder Over Louisville, you must obtain one of the Pegasus Pins sold by the organisers. This pin will give you access to several Kentucky Derby Festival events, including Thunder.
Pins can be purchased at many different retail stores, starting in February next year, but can also be ordered online. See this page for further information.
