Preparing for Melbourne Cup Day

Melbourne Cup Day is Australia's most famous Tuesday. At 3.00 pm AEST, on the first Tuesday in November, Australians everywhere stop for one of the world's most famous horse races - the Melbourne Cup.

It's a day when the nation stops whatever it's doing to listen to the race call, or watch the race on TV. Even those who don't usually bet, try their luck with a small wager or entry into a 'sweep' - a lottery in which each ticket-holder is matched with a randomly drawn horse.

'Fashions On The Field' is a major focus of the day.

Beautiful & sophisticated hats

My workplace will be celebrating Melbourne Cup day tomorrow. They are having a competition on who got the Best Hat. I'm joining the crowd of course :)
