300 children don their Kentucky Derby attire for a tea party

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A Kentucky Derby Festival event Sunday proved you're never too young to dress up in Derby Fashion.

Little girls in bright sun dresses and little boys in bow ties had a tea party with the Kentucky Derby Festival princesses. 

But that's not all. 

They also made arts and crafts and strutted their stuff down the runway after picking up some modeling tips. 

Organizers say they hope the 300 children will be able to enjoy the Derby Festival just as much as adults do.

"I think they enjoy so much getting dressed up and coming and being able to see our princesses that also have their gowns on and mingle and just feel very special and grown up and big," said Ashley Hoffman, chairman of Children's Tea.

WDRB's own Elizabeth Woolsey was the emcee of the tea party .

Money raised from Sunday's event benefits the Fillies, which is an organization that supports the Kentucky Derby Festival.
