Experience the elegance, southern charm and the best of Louisville on the eve of the Kentucky Derby.
The 18th annual Derby Eve Gala at the Seelbach Hilton Hotel will benefit the American Lung Association with southern decadence.
Guests partied until late in the night on Friday at the Derby Eve Gala. The bash was held at the historic Seelbach Hotel. Though sadly, Jay Gatsby failed to make an appearance, many other guests kicked up their dancing shoes for a night of rollicking fun.
While other Derby-eve events are known for its throngs of star-studded celebrities, this party will be sure to please its devoted crowd with fabulous gourmet food, show-stopping entertainment and just plain fun.
Derby Week is marked by an impressive slate of extremely festive social events ranging from campouts like the Hillbilly Infield, to the most celebrated party of them all, the Barnstable Brown Gala.
