Grab your biggest hat and best attire, because DA Blodgett- St. John's is hosting the third annual Derby Day on Saturday.

Held at Frederik Meijer Gardens, people will be able to watch the Kentucky Derby race while taking part in many other derby-themed activities. There'll be a best hat and bow tie contest, bourbon tastings, appetizers, raffle prizes, and so much more.

There will also be a euchre card tournament, but guests don't need to know how to play to have a good time.

All the money raised will benefit DA Blodgett's programs, which support more than 8,000 families and kids in West Michigan.

Derby Day will be on Saturday, May 5 from 3-8 p.m.

Tickets cost $35 per person and can be purchased at
