Categories to be judged
Less is not necessarily more! This is the category for those who want to showcase their creativity by donning the most outrageous hat. The more embellishment the better. Don’t be shy in designing the most whimsical hat at Steeplechase!
The tradition of wearing a beautiful hat to Steeplechase is as classic as the race itself. The prize will be awarded to the lady wearing the most elegant hat.
Best Children’s Hat:
Our 12 & under guests have an opportunity too shine in our Best Children’s Hat Category. Girls and Boys alike can share in the tradition of hats and Steeplechasing. Simple or silly – You chose!
