Celebrating Derby with Mint Juleps


Meriwether Lewis Clark, the grandson of William Clark, is credited with starting the Kentucky Derby. (William Clark was the "Clark" in the explorer pair known as Lewis and Clark.) First run in 1874, the 2021 Derby marks the 147th running of the famous thoroughbred horse race in Louisville, Kentucky. It is the first of three horse races run each year known as the Triple Crown.

Social Media Description

Have you ever been to the Kentucky Derby?

Whenever we plan RV journeys, I always search for local events that coincide with our stops along the way. Before we started making reservations for campgrounds in 2019, I realized that we were planning to be in Louisville just before the Kentucky Derby. By making a very minor change to our planned itinerary, we could attend Derby!

I traveled to Louisville many times for work and always thought it would be cool to be there on the big day. Honestly, I never thought it would happen - but am so glad that we decided to do it. It was a very rainy day, but fun, nonetheless.

Have you been to any of the Triple Crown races?
