Melboune Cup 2012

The first Tuesday in November is the day that our most famous horse race is run in Melbourne.

It's called the Melbourne Cup or "the Cup" and is well known around the world I hear.

We try to celebrate the big day even if we can't actually be there - so this year we attended a Melbourne Cup Luncheon at our local cinema. 

Plenty of sweeps , lots of champagne and a lovely smorgasbord lunch and then back into the theatre for the cup.  We watched the movie Argo when we first arrived, and that was really interesting.

Some pics:

A great time was had by all!!
