A few weekends ago, I got dressed up and headed off to the Alice Springs Turf Club for a day of fashion, tasty beverages, and ponies. That’s right, I went to the races.
There were hats and fascinators of all shapes and sizes.
The ladies went out to view the field. There was also a fair amount of betting going on. I didn’t win anything, but several of my friends got lucky on a long shot!
There were also two fashion shows to keep us entertained between races. Probably not practical, but definitely fun to see what they came out in!
All in all, it was a fabulous day. I will probably be there again next year too!
Many, many more pictures of hats, horses, and haute couture can be found here.
