Cyndi Lauper to serve as grand marshal of parade

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Singer Cyndi Lauper will be the grand
marshal in the Pegasus Parade next month.
The Grammy Award-winning singer is coming to Louisville as a
guest of the Kentucky Derby Festival. Before the May 3 parade
begins, Lauper will give a mini performance to the crowd, including
her hit "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," while dancers from a local
studio perform.
While she's visiting, Lauper also is expected to attend the
annual Barnstable Brown Gala on Derby eve and appear at the
Celebrity Day at the Downs.
Stacey Robinson, the Festival's senior vice president of
operations, told The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/HYZ0Uo) that
Lauper would "bring tremendous energy and excitement as grand
marshal."
