Join The Voice-Tribune for our Breeders’ Cup Fascinator & Fedora contest tonight at Churchill Downs. The fashion contest will reward two race fans with $5,000 each; one wearing a fascinator and one wearing a fedora. All attendees are invited to participate. The contest takes place in the Aristides Garden located in the paddock area at Churchill Downs.
The contest will take place between Race 5 which has a 4:10 p.m. post time and Race 7 which has a post time of 5:30 p.m. After Race 7 the top five fascinators and top five fedoras will be called back for final judging. The winners will be announced by Race 8 at the post time of 6:10 p.m.
Fascinators and fedoras will surely be the highlight of all fashion talk from this weekend. Be sure to support local businesses and shop local for all your Breeders Cup attire. Jana Metcalfe of Jana’s Hat Box is one of the designers who were so kind enough to send me some pictures of her fascinators. Jana’s fascinators can be found at Clod Hoppers, Les Filles Boutique and Barry Wooley Designs  Showroom.
