MONROE - Kentucky Derby parties are a chance for those who live far from Louisville's Churchill Downs to take in the horse race on television, surrounded by crowds sporting the large hats and colorful springtime outfits famously worn at the "Run for the Roses." The Monroe Chamber of Commerce found the idea inspiring and decided to host a Kentucky Derby party to raise funds for local organizations. Executive Director Cara Carper noted the change was a chance to bring some variety to the city.
