Ballinrobe Racecouse is proud to announce its first Fashion Day and Best Hat competition on Monday 20th July in conjunction with Caitriona King, milliner and Catwalk Model Agency Galway.
The Fashion day will feature a number of live fashion shows being staged throughout the evening showcasing the best of the west boutiques. As Ballinrobe is only a week prior the much anticipated Galway festival, this fashion day will allow the opportunity for all Ladies to gain some ideas to get ahead of the competition at Galway.
The Best Hat competition sponsored by award winning milliner Caitriona King will see some lucky lady walk away with a Caitriona King designed hat to the value of €300 euro. Caitriona recently won Milliner of the Year at the fashion innovation awards 2015 and her extraordinary talent has grown from strength to strength. The competition will be judged by Grainne McMahon, fashion journalist and blogger.

This year the racecourse opened a new playground and on the day there will be bouncing castles, face painting, meet and greet rags to riches miniature ponies and the front runner racing club to teach children all about racing.
