Celebrate Derby Day in Waynesboro

Item by Chris Graham

You won’t be in Kentucky, but otherwise you’ll feel like you’re at the Derby.

“It will be a mix of high times and old town,” said Phyllis Pendergraft, one of the organizers of Horses and Hats, a Kentucky Derby party being sponsored by the Wayne Theatre Alliance in Waynesboro on Saturday.

The Derby will be featured on the big screen at the event, which is being held at a private home in Waynesboro. A hat competition, mint juleps and information about the big race will mark the walkup to the action.

The event will begin at 3 p.m. Tickets are $25 each and are available at the Wayne Theatre Alliance office at 533 W. Main St. or by calling 540.943.9999.
