Kentucky Derby Floats

Louisville Life goes behind-the-scenes at the Kentucky Derby Festival’s Pegasus Parade to find out how participants from Hwang’s Martial Arts Academy make their float.

Float creators compete for awards based on originality, eye appeal, theme representation, enthusiasm and more. Last year, Hwang’s float won third place.

The president of the Kentucky Derby Festival, Mike Berry, also delves into the history of the Festival’s longest-running event.
