UofL Basketball Teams to Serve as Derby Parade Grand Marshals

With the greatest two minutes in sports just around the corner, the Derby Festival is about to begin.   One of the main events of the Derby Festival is the Pegasus Parade, which will take place on May 2nd.  Every year, different people or groups serve as Grand Marshal.  This year, the Grand Marshals for the parade are none other than the Louisville Cardinals Men’s and Women’s Basketball Teams, both of whom had amazing NCAA Tournament runs this year.  Also, according to GoCards.com:

A limited number of tickets for UofL students are available for $5. To purchase those tickets, students must come to the Kentucky Derby Festival Office at 1001 South Third Street and present their student ID. There is a limit of two tickets per student. Tickets for the public are available now and can be purchased online (www.KDF.org) or by calling the Derby Festival Hotline at (502) 584-FEST. Tickets are $9 for bleacher seats and $11 for chair seating.

So go on out and purchase a ticket to go see the Cards in a great Parade that takes place two days before the Derby!

Go Cards!
