FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Not all Derby Day events will take place in Louisville on the first Saturday in May.

The 79th annual Governor’s Derby Celebration in downtown Frankfort is set for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on May 2.

The governor’s office says visitors can expect the traditional fare of past Derby Celebrations, such as a farmers’ market, arts and crafts, specialty vendors, children’s activities and live music.

This year’s celebration will also include the Derby Dash, with races for children ages 2 to 12.

Many downtown Frankfort restaurants and stores will be open with unique and traditional Derby offerings during the celebration. Visitors will also be able to tour the Capital City Museum, the Thomas D. Clark History Center, the Old State Capitol and the Old Governor’s Mansion - all located downtown.
