Let the Festival Begin: crews begin setting up Chow Wagon

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Chow Wagon is the only event that runs throughout the entire Derby Festival.

On Tuesday crews started setting up vendor booths for the popular Derby venue. As always, the price of admission is a Kentucky Derby Pegasus Pin.

Organizers say they're already seeing lots of police presence, so public safety shouldn't be an issue.

"We do have new cameras that I suppose should be up before Thunder, and the police have been here every evening, every day, so it's pretty secure."

Police patrols will also be increased in southern Indiana where Indiana State Police and local officers will deploy nearly 300 officers during Saturday's air show and fireworks.
