Bell Fashions on the Field
RACING: Fashions on the Field has been the highlight of race meets throughout the country and the 2020 annual Bell Race Day was no different.
Men and Women from all over the region donned their finest racewear for the highly anticipated Bell Races Fashions on the Field competition.
Competitors took part in five different categories, including best dressed classic lady, best dressed contemporary lady, best hat or fascinator, best dressed couple and best dressed gentleman.
Bell Race Club vice president Kirsten Todd said it was a huge day for the community.
"The Fashions on the Field is a big event in Bell with a preliminary final followed by a grand final," Todd said.
"There are five categories that all have $500 cash prizes thanks to our sponsors at AGL," she said.
"It's the biggest event for the year in Bell and with the drought it's especially important this year."
Competitors were presented along a catwalk in front of two judges who chose several finalists before selecting winners for each category.
