Kentucky Derby Festival Theme Unveiled

By Sheila Ash

Kentucky Derby Festival officials say this year’s theme is a take on superheroes and comic book characters.

The theme is “Superfest” and includes a character called Super Festival Fan who will be featured in all publications and advertisements.

Festival spokesperson Mark Shallcross says the theme will be incorporated into all events and even the Pegasus Pins.

“The pins will be coming out about the middle of March as they traditionally do and they will feature a super festival look to ‘em they’re sort of a shield that’s on there with a big “F” representing festival,”

Shallcross says there are a few changes to some of the festival’s events including a new route for the mini and full marathon races.
