WAVE 3 News Editorial - May 3, 2016: Derby Excitement

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Capturing the excitement of Derby week starts with the quiet calm of the Bluegrass dawn.

The backside offers the substance to the style to come. It will be joyful all week long as Derby festivities accelerate.

The crowds at Thurby, Oaks, and Derby should be unparalleled by projected terrific weather.

The survivor's walk at the Oaks will be poignant, the Galas ringing in Derby Eve extra festive with the addition of Vanity Fair and Longine's celebrating the Hermitage Toast, and a memorable Republic Bank Pegasus Parade saluting a hometown Voice winner and two very special U of L basketball players, among others.

We will bring you unprecedented live coverage throughout the week, culminating in more than 30 hours throughout the day and night Friday and Saturday.

We salute all of you for the warm welcome you embrace to all of our visitors, adding to the appeal.
