Saratoga hat day is a time-honored tradition at the Racetrack. In fact, hats have been a longstanding tradition in Saratoga for several decades! This past weekend was the Hats Off To Saratoga Festival with the weekend concluding with the annual Saratoga Hat Contest on Sunday at the Racetrack.
The annual Saratoga Hat Contest is always such fun, seeing the creativity of Saratoga fans, young and old, sporting their most surprisingly outrageous and over-the-top hats. We roamed the track talking with and taking pictures of some of the most notable hats we saw to share with you. Be warned — some hats are a bit wacky! Check out the variety and inventiveness of the vibrant community at work in the bizarre hats and outfits!
