LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) -- The 2018 Pegasus Pin design is inspired by the Festival’s Official Poster image. The plastic pin features the Pegasus from the poster in a color combination of purple along with white, green and gold foil.

In March, the pins will be available to the public and will sell for $6 each at 1,000 retail locations or at PegasusPins.com. The price at the entrance to events will be $7. Festival Fun Packs, which include a package of 5 Pegasus Pins, also return this year for $25. Children 6 and under are not required to have a Pegasus Pin for admission to Festival events.

“You can’t lose with the purchase of a Pegasus Pin,” said Mike Berry, President and CEO of the Kentucky Derby Festival. “They are a tremendous value providing free admission into more than half of the Festival’s events, and any 2018 plastic pin could make you a Grand Prize winner.”
