5/5 Kentucky Derby Day Party

Why: Can’t make it to Churchill Downs this year? You can still get in on the Derby action because Linden Place Mansion is off to the races!

Mint juleps, great food, a live streaming of the 144th annual Kentucky Derby, a silent auction and much more will provide party goers with a true Colt family fashion experience.
Where: Linden Place Mansion, 500 Hope St., Bristol.
