One of the things I love most about living in Portland, OR is the wide range of events that you can attend. Many of these events benefit various charities, and Portlanders come out in force to support them. Out of all of the events in Portland, the Kentucky Derby Party is my favorite. The atmosphere, the outfits, and the people make this event truly unique and the energy is unmatched. I honestly block out this event a calendar year in advance and am like a kid at Christmas every time!
One of the things that makes this event truly unique are the outfits. People go all out wearing seersucker, linen, bit hats, fancy dresses, plaid, or anything else that you'd wear to the actual Kentucky Derby. It's like Halloween with class!
