For two weeks prior to the running of the Kentucky Derby, the Kentucky Derby Festival Association sponsors the Kentucky Derby Festival. The Festival ran from 1935-37 and after an almost 20 year hiatus, restarted again in 1956. Activities include an air show, a fireworks display, a hot-air balloon race, a steamboat race, a parade, both a marathon and mini-marathon, and the basketball classic. One of the long time traditions of the festival includes the Royal Court where the official “queen” is selected by the spin of a wheel.
