before the race

In true Southern style, tailgating -- and seeing and being seen -- at the Gold Cup Races is almost as important as the races themselves. Since your package gives you the opportunity to move about, you'll be able to participate in this time-honored tradition. Throw on your Sunday's best (ladies usually don sundresses and pearls while guys sport seersucker) and set up your own festive picnic. Break out just a few drinks and dips, or let your Southern hospitality shine with a full table full of finger foods and perfectly mixed cocktails. Don’t forget to enter the Hat Contest, yet another Gold Cup tradition.
