Durban July 2016

05 August 2016| ,

A month ago, Durban hosted the annual Durban July horse races – bringing the crowds to our small coastal town. Our local race course is buzzing with bookies and jockeys, fashionistas and the whose who of celebville. Last year, we decided that to pay a large amount of money for ticket to the races just to stand in the freezing cold with sore feet and risk having your phone stolen – why not rather host a race party at home. And it is now an annual tradition…
We gather our nearest and dearest, send out an invite, dress to theme, order delicious catering, place our bets in a kitty ofor each race (and winner takes all!) and then dance the night away!

So much fun and we cannot wait for next year already!
