Tune in to NBC at 5pm EST tomorrow for “the most exciting two minutes in sports,” the Kentucky Derby. The first Saturday of May, Churchill Downs Racecourse hosts the kick off the United States Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing. People travel from all over the country to attend the fancy parties, show off new spring fashions, and bet on the race.
If you’re not in the Kentucky area, you can host your own Kentucky Derby party with ideas from the Kentucky Derby Party website. Ladies, don’t forget your signature fabulous hat. Men, express your inner southern gent with a seersucker suit. Everyone, make the day a little more surreal with the help of the Mint Julep, official drink of the Kentucky Derby.
