The Melbourne Cup Carnival is a annual horse racing event. It’s more than that actually… it’s also a social event of partying and drinking at the races.
Feminine and pretty hats were selling like hot cakes last week when I was in the city…
I have never been to the races. But this morning, I spotted a number of people dressed up for the races. I spotted 2 girls waiting for the tram with frills on their hair (sorry, not a great photo). I love seeing the hats and the frills.
It is forecast to be a wet weekend, so men and ladies with special tickets under a roof will stay dry. It won’t be so comfortable for the others….
It’s also interesting to watch people after the races. Like previous years, I expect to see a few drunken and bedraggled men and women, and women with sore legs and feet walking home with high heels in their hands.
