Entertainment: From the moment you arrive at the racetrack, you’ll find the Crow River Country Club transformed into an all out Churchill Downs celebration. Derby Jockeys and miniature horses welcome you to the festival. A refreshing mint julep is delivered to you while music, racing, roses, and fun await just past the winner’s circle. Vote for your favorite attendees to reign as Kentucky Derby Royalty, while live music and dancing by “Feeding Leroy” will bring the evening to a perfect photo finish.
