And They’re Off!

April 5, 2016

In just a few short weeks, Laurel Park will be hosting the hottest spring event of the season – the Decanter Wine & Racing Festival.

This 6th Annual Festival takes place Saturday, April 16, from 12:00 – 6:00 p.m., at Laurel Park racecourse.

This event provides fun and entertainment for everyone. Take the name, for instance: the resident’s of ROSS’ apartments in Laurel may recognize the word “decanter,” but during this festival, the word takes on an entirely new meaning:

“de•cant [verb]: to aerate a fine wine by pouring into an ornate glass vessel;

can•ter [noun]: a controlled gait between a trot and a gallop;

de•cant•er [noun]: an event at Laurel Park combining the traditions of Maryland wine and Maryland horse racing”

Here are six reasons the residents of ROSS’ Laurel apartments should saddle up and race over to the Decanter Wine & Racing Festival’s webpage to snag their tickets:

  1. Live Betting – Bet a little or bet a lot, it’s easy when there are experts at the Wagering 101 booth waiting to help.
  2. Over 100 different wines poured – with 23 wineries in attendance!
  3. Live Music – From 12:00 – 3:00 p.m. enjoy Darcy Dawn & Company , a “Top 40, 90s, Rock, Oldies, Mashups” cover band. Immediately following that fantastic act, from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. is Ken Wenzel & Cross Kentucky, a six-piece roots-rock/Americana band.
  4. Local Food – A collective group of your local favorites will be selling their hottest menu items for you to enjoy throughout the day!
  5. Craft Vendors – Love what you see? Take it home with you! Craft artisans will be in attendance, ready to provide you with Laurel’s finest one-of-a-kind merchandise.
  6. Best Dressed Competition – Spend time carefully planning out your race day outfit, as it may actually pay off! At the Decanter Wine & Racing Festival, “The best-dressed winner will receive two tickets to a future Maryland Wine event AND a pair of Black-Eyed Susan Day Flute Club tickets.”
