Camden Haven dress to impress at 2019 Melbourne Cup celebrations

Residents across the Camden Haven dressed in their best racing clothes to celebrate the 2019 Melbourne Cup.

Hundreds flocked to Club North Haven and Laurieton United Services Club on October 5 to enjoy a fine lunch, catch up with friends and to place a bet.

The consensus is while everyone has a favourite to win it is anyone's guess who will cross the line first.

In the meantime ladies and gentlemen dressed to impress and enjoyed a day out.

The Melbourne Cup will be run at 3pm and is traditionally held on the first Tuesday in November.

The first Melbourne Cup was held in 1861.
