Thunder Over Louisville (31 of 34)

Rated as one of the top 100 events in North America, the Derby Festival's Opening Ceremonies is truly a sight to behold. The breathtaking and 28-minute show includes Thunder's signature one-mile waterfall effect off the bridge, making the fireworks seem to rain down. After more than a decade, the show remains the largest annual pyrotechnic display in North America. Photo courtesy of Louisville Convention & Visitors Bureau.
