My two sons went to Thunder for a few years but the crowds are so big now and the traffic so bad especially after it's over and they finally quit. My wife and I watch parts of it on TV. Love the aircraft and the sky divers. It's a heckuva show. Apparently the noise follows up the river because we can hear the rumble and see the flashes out where we live which is at least 8 to 10 miles or so away.quote:Originally posted by Taurus_9mm
Louisville is so busy during the Derby, I really hate to be on the streets then when the traffic is so congested. It's great though for friends from out of town who wish to come experience it though and people from other places who love the ponies. Better than the Derby, to me anyhow, is Thunder over Louisville - a huge air and fireworks show. If you can get a spot early enough along the river or over on the Indiana side, you're in for a treat, but I usually watch it on tv.
