They arrive decked in feathers, dangled with sugar cubes, adorned with martini glasses, foxes and birds. The entries in the Ladies’ Day Hat Contest at Dressage at Devon are far from ordinary, flaunting everything from high-falutin’ to hilarious. The fourth annual Ladies’ Day Hat Contest will take place on day five of the 33rd Annual Dressage at Devon, Friday, September 28th, at the Devon Horse Show Grounds in Devon, PA.
All ladies in fancy hats (no baseball caps, please) will be admitted to the show at no charge, and will receive a complimentary bag full of goodies, including discount coupons and tickets for the champagne brunch at the show’s Mimosas on the Midway, while supplies last.
At 3:45 p.m., the bonnet bedecked contestants will convene in the Dixon Oval where their unusual headwear will be judged by celebrity judges. Categories may include Prettiest, Most Whimsical, Most Likely to Take Flight, Most Tempting to Take a Bite Out Of and more.
