Ladies, procure your finest Derby hat and spring dresses. Gentlemen, get your seersucker suits pressed and your hats boxed. It is time to cheer on the ponies at the 7th Annual Royale Kentucky Derby Party on Saturday May 7th. We have a hat contest for both the ladies and the gents. Proper Derby dress code will be enforced.
Legendary Saint Louis rockabilly trio the Tripdaddys will be performing with the southside’s own Lulus on the courtyard. Mint Juleps and featured cocktails will be available at an additional satellite bar in order to keep the cheer flowing.
There will be mouse races again this year, so save your dollars for this contest as well- proceeds benefit charity.
A limited number of advance $8 tickets(4 per person) are available now at the Royale, and there will be allotted tickets available for $10 on the day of the race.
The party starts at 2pm with the Lulus starting at 2:30. Post time at 5:04.
