Ky Derby Parade - Call for Color Guardsmen-2010

2009 ParadeThe most exciting season in Louisville is the time leading up to the world-famous Kentucky Derby, held the first Saturday in May. Normally, the city is in spring's full bloom and alive with a festive atmosphere we call Derby Fever. Please visit the Kentucky Derby Festival (KDF) website at http//www.kdf.org for a listing of events. Two of the largest and most well attended pre-Derby events held during Derby Week, are the Great Steamboat Race (held the Wednesday before Derby) and the Pegasus Parade (held the Thursday before Derby). It is estimated over a million-and-a-half people view Derby Festival events. We strongly encourage and invite you and your guest(s) to join your fellow compatriots in enjoying these outstanding activities.

This year the NSSAR has again been accepted as one of the participating units in the prestigious KDF Pegasus Parade, which is regionally televised and viewed by thousands along the parade route.
