The annual running of the Melbourne Cup in Australia is, for all intents and purposes, a national holiday. The entire Country comes to a standstill during the mid-afternoon running of the fabled horse race and then spends the rest of the day and evening recovering from the celebrations that accompany the event.

Thanks to live satellite television connections, horse racing enthusiasts in Bali will be allowed to follow this year's running ofthe race on Tuesday, November 4, 2003, with two local establishments joining in the spirit and sponsoring Melbourne Cup celebrations. Horse racing aficionados will be able to follow the epic race from either the Kuta or Sanur sides of the island with race parties running simultaneously at the Sanur Paradise Plaza Hotel and the Bali Dynasty Resort. The race broadcast will also be shown on the big screen of the Centerstage Bar at Bali's Hard Rock Hotel. Depending on which location you choose, festivities may include race day buffets, live broadcasts of the race from Melbourne, games, and prizes galore.

Doors open at both locales at 11:00 a.m. with the actual race scheduled for 12:10 p.m. local time.

Those attending either event are encouraged to honor the time-honored Melbourne Cup tradition by arriving in an outrageous hat.

For more information contact the Sanur Paradise Plaza Hotel at telephone ++62-(0)361-281781 Bali Dynasty Resort at telephone ++62-(0)361-752403, or Hard Rock Hotel at telephone ++62-(0)361-761869.
