The Preakness Party is ON!
But you should consider rain boots a fashion accessory.

The 12th annual Preakness Party is being held today on the beautiful grounds of Mount Airy in Warsaw. Due to the weather, we’ve added a best rain boots contest to our always popular best hat contest!

Don’t let the rain keep you away.  Our transport vans and golf carts will be available to provide you with front door service from the parking area to the event. Parking will be on the grounds of Mount Airy just off of the entrance drive. The event tent will be sparkling with lights, our area’s finest restaurants, and wineries will be offering delicious fare and drink, the auction tables will be overflowing with amazing items, and the Preakness horses will roll across our live feed!

Weather-related announcements that may affect the Party will be posted by noon on the day of the event on these two numbers: 804-333-6707 and 804-333-6705
