Back by popular demand! The kick-off for the Kentucky Derby Festival is Thunder Over Louisville, an incredible fireworks and light extravaganza. Enjoy the show but miss the crowds by joining Shockey Tours as we step on board our chartered riverboat to view this celebration from a special vantage point on the Ohio River. A delightful evening begins as we cruise up and down the Ohio River for a couple of hours before our boat is anchored in downtown Louisville to view the Fireworks Extravaganza. We will be able to view the greatest fireworks display in all of North America from the top deck of our riverboat. This is like having a front-row seat for this exciting event. Thrill to the giant sparkling waterfall across the Kennedy Bridge, reaching from Louisville to Indiana. Beam with pride as the giant flag which signals the beginning of the fireworks, waves from the back of an airplane circling overhead. Be amazed at the various designs and beautiful colors of the lights. Relish the feel of “Thunder” as the night is filled with its sights and sounds. Your Thunder package includes: Cruise, hot buffet dinner with dessert, unlimited soft drinks, one 5×7 souvenir photo of your group, cash bar, live music, and transportation via Shockey Tours motorcoach to and from the riverboat.
