Spending Canada at the racetrack is becoming a tradition since the launch of Packwood Grand in 2014. The third annual, Kentucky Derby-inspired event once again sets foot at the Century Downs Racetrack & Casino. Leaving behind their traditional western-style cowboy hats, plaid shirts and denim jeans, Calgarians came in stylish spring/summer fashions  - Ladies in vibrant floral dresses and beautifully decorated fedoras; Gents in eye-catching blazers, bold color trousers and loafers. Added to this year in my ‘Packwood Grand experience book’ was an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour. I was taught with some betting 101 basics, enjoyed learning about the years of prohibition in Alberta and the inspiration behind Packwood Grand. I also got the first hand to taste this year’s signature cocktail “The Packwood” created by Packwood’s official mixologist, Conrad Meers. Luckily Mother Nature has spared us a beautiful sunny day, we even got a little bit of breeze towards the end. Big congrats to the Executive Producers Tyler Rygus and Cory Edwards, as well as the Packwood Grand team for another year of successful event.
