Prepare yourselves, Perth! We’ve got the low down on where you need to spend your Good Friday this year and it’s bloody good indeed.
Our pals from Perth Racing are throwing a seriously good (and 100% free entry) Good Friday Raceday at Ascot Racecourse filled with food trucks, pop up bars and live music, as well as a whole bunch of fun for kids (and kidults) to enjoy. Think: pony rides, an inflatable obstacle course and FREE Easter eggs.
On top of the Group 3 Gimcrack Stakes racing program there are a bunch of packages you can choose from if you’re looking to celebrate your day off in style, but if you just go for the food trucks and pop up bars you’ll still be in for a good time.
The gates open at 12pm, so you can have a sleep in before all of the action kicks off. Find out all you need to know here and get ready to have a really good Friday.
But the fun doesn’t stop there, there are two more events worth your hard earned dollies hitting Ascot this autumn. The Amelia Park Karrakatta Plate Day is giving you the chance to get all dolled up on 14 April at Enclosure On The Deck. This ticketed event includes a grazing-style menu, a primo beverage package and one $1 mystery bet—funsies! Plus, you'll get to witness (and perhaps participate in) all of the fun that is the Fashions on the Field.
If you can't make it to that one, the Schweppes WATC Derby Day on 21 April offers the glitz and glamour of the Red Shoe Society Soiree. Don your best white and black getup as you help raise money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities. Tickets include a glass of sparkling on arrival, Delish Ice pops, two food and drink vouchers, and tasty finger food, plus access to food trucks and an espresso and affogato bar. So avoid the FOMO and get tickets to these stellar racing events, stat.
We’ll see you there!
