This is a day that is never really about the goats. Its pretty much a fashion event as opposed to watching goats race. Lots of beautiful people, hats,dresses and heels, food ,music...Well its supposed to be the equivalent of the Royal Ascot , but i mean why use horses when we have goats? trust Ugandans to get any excuse to party..."social event" now how could we miss that!
Its however always nice if you have an invite to a hospitality tent. Here you find great music, free food and drinks. A place to relax and mingle "after" watching the race, are u kidding me! we natives hit the tents before,during and after the race, we leave the tourists to watch the goats race.
No offence but i mean these guys run around our backyards, streets, we even play with them, so Noooo i ain't donning high heels and a cute dress to go watch them goats race.. am hitting the tents tout suite!
Luckily my friends and i had invites to 2 tents, so we just did what we do best...socialise.
An overload and not so clear pics from the event. It was a sunny and bright morning, got cloudy and rainned in the afternoon,then the gods were merciful and let us party the night away...
My dress was made by the amazing Wambuyi, a Kenyan designer, thanks babes,i love it. Check out her WEBSITE
