Each year, there is a big music festival that attracts carloads of friends for a week of fun. Of course, when there is no music festival, Las Vegas or Marty Gras becomes instant second choices for party-filled friend vacations. However, there is a third option that combines these to scenarios that are lesser known to young people. The good news is that there are unlimited tickets to this chain of parties and may happen on time each year.
For all intensive purposes, these scheduled unbridled annual horse racing parties could become permanent reunion destinations that reunites your friend group each year. Listed below, all of the details to these bacchanalian festivities are listed with all of the pertinent information for attending.
Get your Preak on
The world of American horse racing pauses each year and puts on a fancy hat for three main events called the Triple Crown. This series includes the Kentucky Derby in Louisville, the Preakness in Baltimore, and the Belmont Stakes in New York. Regardless of the fact that all three of these cities have a frat party in conjunction with these major racing days, it is the Preakness at Pimlico Park that brings their A-game.
This rowdy party spirit is completely intentional and part of Pimlico Park’s attempt to bring younger people to this major horse race. To rally on the crowd, there are two horse racing related mascots called Uni-Carl and Kegasus. Needless to say, their antics and those of attendants keep getting better with each successive Preakness. No doubt, after the aplomb of last year’s Preakness Infield party, the 2013 Preakness will likely knock your socks off. All of this magic can be yours on May 18, 2013 for the price of the $50.
Get infected with Derby Fever
As far as the history of the infield parties go, the Kentucky Derby definitely has its own chapter. While they do not have the organize spirit that the Preakness has embraced, Kentucky Derby Infield is still a kind of frat party. One of the things that makes partying at Churchill Downs so nice is the access to gourmet buffet-style dining, the best drinks, and a well marked local tradition for partying in the Infield.
Good examples of Derby Infield shenanigans are evidenced by years of weird videos of the port-a-let races. By default of being around Louisville people during their paramount annual event, you are likely to have a good time and get a solid inoculation of Derby Fever. The tickets to this action on May 4, 2013 start at $50.
Belmont Stakes partying has no bounds
Because they do not have an Infield area in their racetrack, the problem with partying during the Belmont Stakes is that it is much more widespread than the other two legs of the Triple Crown festivities. Nevertheless, because of this no-boundaries situation, major liquor companies all take a stab at trying to throw the best party. The best thing to do in these types of situations is to go party hopping for the Belmont Stakes.
Oh, and at some point, do what you cannot do from the infields of Pimlico and Churchill Downs and actually try to make it to the Belmont Stakes racetrack to watch the race. The cheapest tickets you can get to see the Belmont Stakes are sometimes as low as $10. This fun takes place on June 8, 2013.
