Pittsboro, NC – It’s almost Derby time! The Kentucky Derby is this upcoming Saturday, May 7, and the place to watch the race is the Heads Up! Kentucky Derby Party at Briar Chapel clubhouse.
The party starts at 3 pm and you can look forward to great food, live music, a cash bar (with mint juleps, of course.), race coverage on big screen TV’s, a silent auction with over 65 items, a hat contest, and a fun game to pick which horse will win.
Jack Maverick and His Wild Rebels will provide the music and if you haven’t heard them then you for sure want to attend because they are great!! They perform energetic renditions from some of country music’s greatest pickers, coupled with the soothing steel guitar sounds of Hawaii- very unique, indeed.
The hat contest is sure to be extra creative this year since we have all recently gotten inspiration from the parade of hats at the Royal Wedding.
Tickets to the event are $25 and can be purchased in advance or at the door. All proceeds benefit the work of Heads Up! Therapeutic Riding Program.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday.
