Kentucky Derby Bans Backpacks, Large Purses, Coolers… Hats Still OK

As sporting events increase security measures after the Boston Marathon bombings, the Kentucky Derby will ban backpacks, large purses, weapons, tents, luggage, and coolers for this year’s annual “Run for the Roses” on May 4th. 

According to an Associated Press report, authorities at Churchill Downs said most of the security measures will be the same as in years past, but new items have been added to the list of banned items.

Flamboyant hats will apparently still be allowed on the grounds.
