What A Party At The Derby!

Kentucky Derby has been a big event 133 years and this year the crowd is anything, but all upper crusts of society. Queen Elizabeth II of England should fit in fine, but Kevin Federline and Larry Birkhead?

"I am so excited to attend the Kentucky Derby this year and am honored that the Barnstable Brown Family personally invited me," Kevin told PEOPLE. Kevin will attend Barnstable Brown Party, now in its 19th year, is considered the biggest Derby Eve gathering of celebrities in town and the real place to be seen.

Kevin told PEOPLE, "I've wanted to go for the past few years, so I am taking the opportunity and going to enjoy attending the race, going to the black tie gala's and enjoying the whole experience. It's such a great tradition, and I'm glad I can be a part of it!"

The party's theme is "That's Entertainment," and according to TV station WLKY the guests will include: Kid Rock, Jenny McCarthy, Super Bowl MVPs Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, Olympians Bode Miller and Apolo Ohno, FOX News commentator Bill O'Reilly, actresses Raquel Welch and Cybill Shepherd, comic Eddie Griffin, country singer Travis Tritt and R&B's Michael McDonald.

Cohosting are sisters Tricia Barnstable Brown and Priscilla Barnstable, with proceeds from their charity evening going to benefit diabetes research in honor of Barnstable Brown's husband, David, who died from the disease in 2003.

This is the event where in 2004, freelance photographer Larry Birkhead met Anna Nicole Smith and their daughter, Dannielynn, as the world knows by now was born in September 2006. Dannielynn and her dad, Larry arrived this week in Louisville to visit his family.

What a party this should turn out to be!
