LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Some lucky guests got a sneak preview of the 2016 edition of Kroger's Fest-a-Ville Wednesday evening.

The event will be held at Waterfront Park in Louisville.

A few food vendors were on hand Wednesday. Some games and activities were also set up for the preview event.

"It's going to be a great nine day festival as it usually is. We are expecting between 2,000 and 300,000 people will show up this year," said Tim McGurk, Kroger's Public Affairs Manager.

"There's absolutely something for everyone. It's family-friendly and there are over 100 food and beverage booths, so whatever kind of food or drink you like, we have it down here," McGurk said.

Kroger's Fest-a-Ville will feature the Waterfront Jam Concert Series with national talent, kids' inflatables, rides, and plenty of food and drinks.

The venue will host several Kentucky Derby Festival events, including the U.S. Bank Great Balloon Glimmer, the Chow Wagon, and the KenDucky Derby.

It opens Thursday, April 28, and runs through Derby-eve.

Each guest will need a 2016 Pegasus pin to get inside.
