The Kentucky Derby is on Saturday, May 3rd, 2008 and takes place in Louisville, KY. Most of the time celebrations begin on the Thursday prior for locals and tourists alike. The Kentucky Derby-isn't just about the horse races, NO! The Derby has been known to attract celebrities and people from everywhere. The first noted celebrity at the races goes back to the 1800's, 1877 to be exact. Any event with celebrities and tv coverage means, you must look your BEST! And the Kentucky Derby is known for women bringing out some of the SHARPEST hats that you have ever seen. I have selected some hats that I think are beautiful and you can take a look to decide for yourself. The hats are designed and handcrafted by Polly Singer for Hats and Veils.net.
