Kentucky Derby Party to run in Heathsville

May 4 will mark the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs and the 14th “Run for the Roses” Kentucky Derby Party at Rice’s Hotel/Hughlett’s Tavern, 73 Monument Place, Heathsville. Everyone is invited.

Tavern party-goers will be able to watch the race on a big screen TV and bet on their favorite ponies, while they dine on sumptuous food and sip on mint juleps, reported Corinne Becker. There also will be an open bar and bluegrass by the Honeywind Bluegrass Boys.

Appropriate dress is whatever is fun, be it a lavish hat, or jeans and boots. Creativity will be rewarded…
