On Tuesday, May 3, you will have the opportunity to make your own fancy Kentucky Derby Hat.
Tradition dictates that ladies wear a beautiful hat creation when attending the Kentucky Derby.
Since you’ll be attending the Outreach Center’s Kentucky Derby Party on Saturday, May 7, you’ll want to be properly attired.
The Kentucky Derby is every woman’s chance to express her inner Southern belle, according to the annual horse race’s website.
The crowning glory of a Southern belle’s ensemble? A standout hat.
If the Derby headdresses remind you of something you’ve seen on Kate Middleton, the Queen, or Princess Beatrice, perhaps it’s because the founder of the Kentucky Derby modeled the race after European-style racing events like the Royal Ascot, which mandates full morning dress for men and fancy hats for women.
Time for the Hat Creation: 2:00 pm
