Not only is it Mother's Day weekend - it's also Derby Weekend!!! If you can't make it to Churchill Downs, the next best place to be may very well be Washington Park's Derby Party on the Civic Lawn 'infield'!

We will also have live music, giant jenga, cornhole, and more! The party starts at 4 PM and goes until 10 PM! More info on Washington Park's website! Ky Derby 4. The Taft Museum of Art is offering a Mother's Day Brunch, beginning at 11 AM.
