The event is family-friendly and will include craft and specialty vendors, thoroughbred racing and live entertainment.

    The event was INSANELY crowded. I didn't realize the track was going to be open for racing (I figured the "Food Truck" event was just using their grounds on a non-racing day.) So start with 23,000 people. Then add only about a dozen food trucks, which a good portion of those 23,000 people wanted to try. I arrived hungry at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, and lines for each truck was OVER an hour long. The selection looked great, but I just couldn't wait, so I left.

    If I try again next year intending to actually sample the food, I will either go in the rain or THE MOMENT the event opens.

    Also: I didn't have a CHANCE at finding the other Meetup participants given the crowd. That at least would have been nice, too.

    Not sure about weather this weekend. If it is going to rain on Saturday, I will go on Sunday. I still think picnic area is best bet. There are some big trees for shade and might keep you dry, if it showers.

      Should we make plans to meet up on Sunday? I have replied to Dan and will to Valerie.

      May 20, 2013

  • Dan H

    I plan to go, but more likely on Sunday. I'll probably have one or more family members in tow, so I don't think I can commit to "rendezvous at the gate at 11am". Whenever I do make it, I'll look for the Meetup folks. And if I don't see you this time, will look forward to other food/foodie events.

      Hopefully we can all make a plan to meet.

    I go to the racetrack a lot. I recommend going to the picnic area, bring a chair and something to drink if you want. The picnic tables will be gone very early. Lots of people meet their friends here. There are several entrances to the picnic area. There are lots of big shady trees. There are many places to place a bet. There are monitors to watch the races or you can walk over the rail and watch it first hand. There are restrooms. I would think that many of the food trucks would set up there. When the track had an Irish day, they had the bagpipes performing in the picnic area. I am going Sat. and get there at 10:30am. Sunday is funday so many people will bring their kids.

      That sounds like a good idea. I'll be there by 11:00 on Sat. and look for the group on the left side of entrance. Thanks.

      May 19, 2013

    • Nadia

      I just realized I can only go on Sunday. If anyone wants to meet at the front entrance on Sunday, message me. If I don't hear from anyone, I probably won't go so please let me know.. :)

    Yikes! I just realized i have another event on Sunday. So looks like i will be there Sat by 11am. My cell[masked]

  • Nadia

    Are we going to meet up or is this "go by yourself meetup group". I wrote an email to the organizer but she did not reply. Should we all make a plan together to meet at the front entrance? I am ok with Saturday or Sunday. Bill (below) suggested Sunday, 30 minutes before at the front gate, that would be 11:00 am.. Who is interested in that plan?

      Anyone who wants to go Sat should do the same thing. I might go both days but not positive. Will confirm later this week. Guess we are on own lol

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
