Opening Day of The Races at Del Mar
Opening Day for the Del Mar Race Track is Wednesday July 20th. And a Special Day it will be. It is Hat Day. Hats of all styles and colors worn by both Men and Women.
Honoring the traditions established the late Bing Crosby, Hat Day is a celebration of not only opening day but a day when you traditionally wear your best outfit for the day and of course, the hat that sets off your attire.
Many have their own interpretations of this day and the hats can get really crazy and some are actually huge. All in the spirit of having fun of course.
But many in their finest are also here to see and bet on their favorite horses. It is a social day of fun, entertainment and of course, don't forget about that hats.
As Bing would say "Come to the Place Where the Surf Meets the Turf- Del Mar "
