SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y.- An annual tradition brought out the bold and creative at the Saratoga Race Course on Sunday.

The 23rd annual hat contest was held at the track. Like every year, the judges were faced with a difficult task to pick the winners.

Some fans made their hats with chicken wire and some with papier-mâché and paint. 

The contest is an opening weekend tradition, which was emceed by NEWS10 ABC’s Heather Kovar this year. 

Contestants young and old competed for the three categories, Kreative Kids, Fashionably Saratoga, and Uniquely Saratoga. Prizes were awarded to the top three contestants in each category.

“Looking at uniqueness, a sense of fun, a sense of whimsy,” said judge Heidi Kelly.

Whimsy and unique is exactly what the judges received this year as they made the difficult choice of picking nine overall winners.
