Montana has plenty of horse fanatics, but almost none of them will make it to Louisville to watch the Kentucky Derby on Saturday.  So, here's the next best thing: The Billings Derby Party.

This party will not only give you the chance to watch the most exciting two minutes in sports with other fans, but it's a great excuse to get dressed up for the derby as people have done for 144 years.  Big hats, great food, entertainment, Mint Juleps, a chance to win some money...the next best thing to being there.
This event also supports a great local cause.  Half of the total raised in the Derby Horse Auction goes to the three separate winning bidders for Win - Place - Show.  The other half goes to a great local organization, the Yellowstone Boys & Girls Ranch Foundation.
The party happens this Saturday, May 4th from 2-8 p.m. at the Swift River Ranch, 4313 Duck Creek Rd.
