It's Derby Party Time @ MAC
Mint Juleps Of Course!
Maiden Alley Cinema (MAC) is getting ready to celebrate their 4th Annual Derby Party this Saturday, May 5. Of course everything is going to be Derby themed this year including the food. Highwater Fresh Bar (located at 224 Broadway) will host a delicious spread. Everyone who attends the party will get to take home a commemorative glass.
There will be lots of mint juleps, signature Derby themed cocktails and wine on hand. As well as a variety of soft drinks.
MAC is very excited to partner with the Paducah Bourbon Society for this event.
Dance to Soul Dog!
Entertainment will be provided by local favorites, Soul Dog, so you’ll be dancing all day long! Soul Dog was formed in 2010 and began playing venues in the Paducah region in 2011. The band has regularly played Porkstock, Lowertown Arts Festival, Harrah's Metropolis, 4th of July Celebrations in Mayfield and at the Carson Center as well as being active in the bar/restaurant venues of Paducah and Murray. Soul Dog’s name is of course inspired by the music they play - great soul Music by artists such as Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave, Al Green, Smokey Robinson, The Temptations and more. Some classic rock and Soul Dog originals rounds out the sets.
See the BIG race on the BIG Screen
The food will be served in Max's courtyard during the start of the event, and then guests will move to the Maiden Alley Cinema lobby for dessert and the BIG race on the BIG screen. The event will begin at 1pm and will conclude after the final race.
Derby Hat Contest
Don’t forget to bring your Derby hats for the hat contest and your wallet for the live & silent auctions – because this is a fundraising event! The auction items are going to be fun and include themed packages including a mixed media workshop at Ephemera, a birthday party at MAC, video games on the big screen, a historic downtown tour with Fowler Black and dinner with Paducah Mayor, Brandi Harless.
Organizers are also auctioning off an original Tim Jaeger painting. You won’t want to miss one of our favorite local comedians and radio personalities, Mr. Todd Holloman, will be conducting the live auction
