Celebrating Melbourne Cup in style at Arcare Oatlands

The community of Arcare Oatlands celebrated Melbourne Cup in style with residents dressing up in their best outfits and gathering for an afternoon of racing fun.

Days prior to the Melbourne Cup celebration, residents had already begun placing their sweeps in anticipation for the big race.

On the day of the actual race, residents enjoyed an assortment of finger foods and drinks while watching the exciting race.

To add to the Melbourne Cup mood, residents were also very keen to participate in various competitions.

Resident Emilia won ‘Best Dressed’ for her matching black and blue outfit.

While Savka and Delia both won ‘Best Fascinator’ for their floral fascinators.

Winners in both categories were awarded prizes, prepared by the Lifestyle team.

‘It has been wonderful to join together and watch the race,’ resident Sylvia said.

And we could not agree more!

All the ladies and gentlemen in our Arcare Oatlands community were dressed to impress as they celebrated Melbourne Cup in style.
