Melbourne Cup Spring Racing

Today is Melbourne Cup Day - the Race That Stops The Nation!
The lucky people of Victoria have a Public Holiday so they can spend the day at the races enjoying the excitement of the day.
Us Perthians aren't as lucky but everybody still stops to watch the race - if customers or members of the public dare ring or visit any workplace during the hours of the race they are shamed as un-Australian!
My work is having a Spring Racing theme so we'll be wearing our best floral displays, take a punt in the $2 office sweep and watch the race.
One year I'd love to take off to Melbourne and enjoy the Cup first hand at the track dressed to impress! In the meantime I'll just admire all the fashions on the field from afar ...

Do you celebrate Melbourne Cup?
