There are few American sporting events with the history and popularity of the Kentucky Derby. Its rich traditions – sipping a mint julep, donning a beautiful hat, and joining fellow race fans in singing “My Old Kentucky Home” are enjoyed across the country. While we can’t personally go to the “Running of the Roses” we can hold our own “Kentucky Derby” races at Viking Park. Put on your Sunday best, fix up your most outrageous hat, and bet on your favorite horses (with fake money) which you can then use to buy fun prizes. Enjoy a lunch of crispy chicken wrap, salad, fresh fruit, coleslaw, and of course dessert.

Registration deadline 5/9
