Come for the horses, stay for the Margarita Bar.
Last year was the first for Ferdinand's Ball and this year they are coming back with a fresh face. This Oaks Eve fundraiser falls directly on Cinco de Mayo and the organizers have not let that go unnoticed. How many other Derby Parties will have a Margarita Bar?

Not all Derby Parties are created equal.  Ferdinand's Ball, Thursday April 29th at the Frazier Museum, is the first Derby Party all about the horses.
The Ferdinand's Ball, hosted by Access Hollywood's Maria Menounos, is not just another Kentucky Derby Party. Yes, there will be plenty of celebrities, hats, cocktails, and food, but this Derby Party is all about the horses. Considering the Kentucky Derby is a horse race, I think this is wonderful!
