I am really looking forward to this Sunday, not because I want to have a lazy Sunday lying around but because I cant wait for the Mackay Harbour Beach Horse Races! Its the first time I've had the chance to go and this year Crazy Teapot is very fortunate to be involved with fantastic event. We will have a display in the 'History of Hats' Marque they will have set up on the day, where you can browse through and look at a history of many wonderful hats/headpieces including the wonderful Crazy Teapot collection.

They have organised what I think will be a fabulous day out for the whole family with many different ticket options with various inclusions. (below information collected from Mackay Harbour Beach Race Day website:

Now if you haven't booked your tickets you still can through the MECC or you can pay extra and buy tickets on the day at the gate. So if your in the Mackay/Whitsundays area I hope we see you there, its going to be a great day out for the whole family!
