As the iconic call to post from the bugler sounded for the 148th running of the Kentucky Derby and the fun and games were well underway at the Derby Day Party at Bridgewater. Attendees voted on the “Best Hat” and “Best Bow Tie” with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes handed out in each category. To add to the fun scratch-off cards and wager slips were available for sale before post time. Tasty food, refreshing beverages, and a (human) horse race was held with a grand prize winner awarded before the post. Cue the tears as "My Old Kentucky Home" is sung; everyone is from Kentucky for that moment alone! The day held ladies gussied up in frilly hats, guys in colorful bowties and silly hats, loads of laughs, 2 minutes of unbridled excitement, and a lifetime of memories for all in attendance.
