Goodna's Melbourne Cup Fun
The Melbourne Cup is always a big event in our village with nearly the whole village turning up every year to join in on the race day fun.
Ladies dress up in hats, as do the men...sometimes! We have best hat awards, sweeps, and sometimes even enjoy an impromptu fashion parade from our lovely ladies.
We enjoy a delicious lunch prepared by the social committee and then the vibe in the room gets more tense by the second as the race of the year looms.
Everyone crowds around the TV and just seconds into the race the cheering starts, all hoping that today is our lucky day!
This year we had a couple of lucky sweep winners, whilst the majority of us went home glad we only wasted a few dollars!
Still... a great day was had by all.
