LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Check your bags for prohibited items, if you're flying in or out of Louisville around the Kentucky Derby. 

The Transportation Security Administration is reminding everyone what is and isn't allowed on planes.

Security at Louisville International Airport has collected a wide variety of items from people over the past months, including a cast iron skillet, knives, brass knuckles, bottles of bourbon and even a large snow globe. Even some Louisville Slugger bats aren't allowed.

Some items can be checked inside larger suitcases. For the things that can't be checked, there will be stations set up where you can ship the item to your home.

TSA regional specialist Mark Howell said they will have plenty of people to help out-of-town guests. 

"You're going to see additional staffing here this weekend, you're going to see K-9 resources -- everything we can possibly do to make it as efficient as possible, but keeping the underlying on security as people travel," said Howell. 

Airport officials say that the Sunday after Derby is one of their busiest days and suggest getting there at least two-and-a-half hours before your flight.
