The Very Best Dressed at the Preakness on the Piazza

The Very Best Dressed at the Preakness on the Piazza

I’ve been covering the Preakness on the Piazza for quite some time now. It’s always a great party, but in the past it’s been a little damp, though that never stopped the dancing in the rain. This year it was spectacular, it was cloudy but no rain drops fell and the party spread out on Schmidt’s Commons at the Piazza.  Everyone was jovial, and dressed to the nines. Dare I say it but a better dressed crowd than the Radnor Hunt Races which I had attended earlier in the day, and had always been the must attend event on Preakness Day. Well let me hand the crown over to Preakness. It is the must attend event of the day.  The 5th annual Preakness at the Piazza event, was held the evening of the 142nd running of the historic Preakness Stakes!  100% of the net proceeds will support the National MS Society.

Here are some of the Best Dressed attendees, and might I say serious horse race watchers. During the running of the Preakness all eyes were on the 400 inch tv hung above the piazza, there was cheering, there was disappointment and there was one guy going crazy cause he got the Trifecta on a bet he made online.

Muckfest is next Saturday in Philadelphia. Support my friend Jackie Kollar as she raises money to fight MS


MuckFest® MS is the fun mud run in support of a world free of multiple sclerosis. The run is pure athletic hilarity (especially with me on the course) on a muddy course full of outrageous obstacles.

The “MS” part of MuckFest MS stands for multiple sclerosis, an upredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.  Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, and MS affects more than 2.3 million worldwide. This is the reason we come together: to rally friends in support of people living with MS in our community.
