The registration booth will be in the general admission area, where entrants can register their details, collect number paddles and find out competition location and timings.
Thoroughbred Racing SA Senior Marketing Coordinator Cassandra Norris, also on the state wide FATR judging panel, said Penola competitors have a reputation for perfectly pairing their raceday ensembles.
"Country competitors always 'wow' spectators and judges with their incredible handcrafted millinery and pieces that bring a truly unique look to the competition," Ms Norris said.
"When selecting a winner, judges are looking for originality, attention to detail, and an ensemble that strikes the right balance between tradition and current trends."
While you're there, why not make it a day out with family and friends? Enjoy Easter Sunday with a refreshment from the PIMMS Bar and a delicious feast from the range of food vans on offer.
There will also be lots of activities to keep the kids entertained, with a visit from the Easter Bunny, a bouncing castle, running races and much more.
