HappyTail Hour

Dog owners may hate the way that the Kentucky Derby Festival kicked off, with loud fighter jets and fireworks causing their dogs to go berserk. But the people at KDF are going to make it up to Louisville dog owners with HappyTail Hour. It’s a chance for you and your fur-covered companion to mingle and play with other dog lovers down at the Fest-a-Ville on Waterfront Park. There will be live music by the Hot Brown Smackdown, cocktails and plenty of food. Just make sure to keep your pets on a leash, and don’t be an asshole and leave your dogs poop on the ground!
