The event features a McDonald's playground area, elements of the Thunder Air Show, planes on display, interactive photo booth with different Thunder backdrops, helicopter rides for $40 and much more.  Admission is free with a 2014 Pegasus Pin or 2014 McDonald's Thunder Funder cup.

The 2014 Thunder Over Louisville, themed "Throwback Thunder," is set for Saturday, April 12, and will be the 25th annual production.
