Hats at the Horse Races!

Lone Star Park hosted a Texas-style day at the races on May 1, 2010, as everyone can’t get to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby.  Lone Star Park is located between Dallas and Fort Worth.  The weather was wonderful and the sea of hats was a joy to behold.  Horses and jockeys were there somewhere but we all know the real race was for the hat contest prize of $500.  Hundreds of ladies turned out in their finest toppers to promenade around the grounds.  One of my favorites was the flower covered sensation in the middle of the above photo.  Sundresses, sassy sandals, smiles and stunning hats were the story of the day.   Several groups enjoy this annual outing with champagne and strawberries in addition to the buffet.  Valet parking is the way to arrive fresh.       Hope to see you next year!
