Kentucky Derby Day Party

When: Sat., May 5, 4-7 p.m. 2012

While the Kentucky Derby may be “the most exciting two minutes in sports,” what really makes the race thrilling are the impossibly huge hats and the rounds of mint juleps. Spend your day at the races harbor-side as McElveen Automotive presents Charleston Stage’s second Derby Day Celebration at the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina on Patriot’s Point. It may not be Millionaire’s Row at Churchill Downs, but the Lookout Pavilion will provide all the glamour of the derby along with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails including, of course, the Derby’s signature bourbon drink, the mint julep. The competition isn’t just for the horses, so dress to impress. A lady’s “Best Hat” and gentlemen’s “Best Dressed” contest will be held just before the horses take to the track.
