Derby Day Highlights
While the first day of Melbourne Cup Carnival was off to a rainy start, that didn’t deter all the excitement and style expected from Derby Day. Kennedy Pavilion officially welcomed its first guests to an intimate and warm atmosphere, ready to take in all the racing moments that lay ahead. Food & Desire created a bespoke menu including signature Watermelon Paloma cocktails throughout the day, while Victoria Whitelaw’s floral artistry livened the space with colour and elegance. From the soul jazz entertainment that filled the day to the Exhibition of Wonders area that displayed a variety of covetable watches, Derby Day at Kennedy Pavilion offered a delightful taste of the remaining race days to come.
