It’s the South so you already know we’ve got to watch The Kentucky Derby. Yes, we know it may not be the most hip event to watch, BUT it can definitely be one of the most exciting. Granted you’re only yelling at the TV for all of two minutes. It’s still one helluva two minutes. Also, it’s WHAT you do while gearing up for the big moment.
While we can’t be in Kentucky, we can still enjoy the excitement of the day. Colony Square is bringing major derby day energy. Guests can look forward to enjoying good weather and good vibes on May 6. Guests will enjoy live music drinks, race betting, photo opportunities, and more. We all know that the Kentucky Derby is allll about the hats, so guests are encouraged to attend with their fancy hats and bowties.
The event kicks off at 5:30 pm, guests will be able to enjoy signature Mint Juleps and other cocktails from the event bars. Live entertainment by Emerald City Empire will have you dancing all night long. And make sure you capture the moment at the photo station that will be on-site as well. Just because you aren’t at the race track doesn’t mean you can’t place a bet or two!
Guests will have the opportunity to place their bets by purchasing raffle tickets at the betting station! All participants will get a chance to win a prize package that includes gifts from select Colony Square restaurants and retailers. Once the race is over, you don’t have to go home, but you can still enjoy the surrounding restaurants and entertainment spots.
