LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Officials with the Kentucky Derby Festival have unveiled this year's theme for Thunder Over Louisville. 

KDF President Mike Barry says this year's theme -- "No Strings Attached" -- is a nod to the Louisville Orchestra for recording the soundtrack to this year's show. 

It's also a nod to the soundtrack recorded by the Louisville Orchestra and Conductor Teddy Abrams.

"Teddy helped select the pieces used in the soundtrack and arranged this, so this is an original arrangement," said Mike Berry, Kentucky Derby Festival President and CEO. "So when you hear it for Thunder Over Louisville, it will be a premiere."

Thunder Over Louisville will feature the U.S. Navy Parachute Team -- The Leap Frogs -- as well as the Trojan Horsemen T-28 Demo Team.

A complete show schedule will be released closer to the show date.  

WDRB is your official Thunder Over Louisville station. We will be broadcasting and streaming the air show and fireworks all day Saturday, April 23.
