Harbor View Hotel readies for annual Kentucky Derby Party May 5
It’s off to the races for Harbor View Hotel as preparations commence for its annual Kentucky Derby Party on Saturday, May 5th in Lighthouse Grill. Guests are invited to dress their best – big, beautiful hats and seersucker suits recommended – and come celebrate “The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports.”
DJ Bluto will be returning to emcee for the evening, and Executive Chef Richard Doucette will be dishing out derby-inspired hors d’oeuvres. As this year’s event will take place on Cinco de Mayo, party-goers should keep an eye out for the hotel’s nod to the holiday with special Tequila Juleps, though lovers of the original Mint Julip can expect to enjoy those, too.
Attendees should note that donning “Derby garb” will be vital as prizes will be handed out for “Best Dressed” and “Best Hat” of the night. Prizes are courtesy of event sponsor Vineyard Vines. Should one be unable to locate his or her own sparkly fascinator or pastel bowtie, they will be pleased to learn about the Dreamboat Hats Trunk Show that will take place in the hotel lobby from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. on May 5.
Tickets are $35 per person and can be purchased on Brown Paper Tickets. The Kentucky Derby Party is a 21+ event.
