Melbourne Cup Carnival 2011 - Emirates Stakes Day

The last day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival, Emirates Stakes Day

Known as 'Family Day' the day featured family friendly attractions with a Jumping Castle, Emirates Family Fashions on the Field and Channel Seven Stars were on hand to sign autographs to adoring fans. The weather was turned up for the last day of the carnival, going up to as high as 30 degrees.

The Birdcage was relaxed and quiet with guests enjoying the refreshing air con and shelter inside. The Swisse Marquee managed to generate lines, even without Kim Kardashian's anticipated appearance. Though they did have a cut out of the reality star... I guess that helped?

At the Fruche Marquee guests sipped on cold cocktails, champagne and Fruche flavours galore. With Miss J back home, DJ Kate Jean kept the fun alive in the Marquee.

This is my last Melbourne Cup Carnival 2011 post! It was a great experience getting to go to the races, experiencing new things, meeting new people and working out new ways to wear formal wear. I hope you've enjoyed all my posts, be sure to check the others out.

A big thanks to Miss J Alexander and Fruche for the opportunity! If you haven't already checkout Fruche's Facebook page for more shots from the carnival.
