LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One Kentucky Lottery player has won VIP treatment for the Kentucky Derby Festival.

Louisville resident Pat Kemper is this year's "Festival Fanatic." As the "Thundernator," she'll count down to the opening of Thunder Over Louisville fireworks show in the Command Center at the Galt House.

She also gets much more, including a stay for four at the Galt House on the night of Thunder Over Louisville, a ride in the Pegasus Parade, a hot air balloon ride, seats on Millionaires Row during Celebrity Day at the Downs, and $500.

More than 7,000 fans entered the lottery contest. 

Kemper says she's excited, as she's only ever watched Thunder Over Louisville on television.

You can watch the show right here on WDRB on April 23.
