Tonight kicks off Derby Week at Churchill Downs. Opening Night offers more than just live racing — actors, dancers, musicians, visual artists and more will perform throughout the track. The night will also feature the inaugural Awards in the Arts. Gates open at 5pm with the first live race at 6pm. Tickets are $10-$125.

But back to what you are going to wear...
According to Churchill Downs, the attire is Dress to Impress. Ladies are encouraged to wear party and cocktail dresses and men sharp pants and a dress shirt; tie is optional. Wearing a fascinator or a hat is perfectly appropriate. Here are some ideas that we found.
