The week of unofficial holidays comes to a close on Saturday with the 143rd annual Kentucky Derby. Get your fanciest hat ready and convince yourself that mint juleps aren’t that bad, then check out this high-falutin’ fundraiser for DeLand’s Athens Theatre. Enjoy live bluegrass, juleps and bourbon flights, casino games, hat contests and more while waiting for three whole minutes of horse racing. Doo-dah, doo-dah.
4:30-7:30 p.m. Saturday; Wayne G. Sanborn Center, 815 S. Alabama Ave., DeLand; $50; athensdeland.com
