International Gold Cup Races: Nice Family Adventure at The Plains

If you are a Northern Virginia home owner, or if you are a home buyer who will be living in the area,  it can be easy to forget that there is another world of Virginia countryside not far away.

Scattered throughout the year there are easy “adventures” to enjoy, if you know about them. One such opportunity is the upcoming International Gold Cup Races on October 17, 2009, just a short drive out into the picturesque areas of The Plains,Virginia.



This would be a terrific family day. You will see magnificent horses and their skilled riders in serious competition. I understand the cost is about $55.00 per car load.  And the proceeds benefit a worthy cause, the Great Meadows Foundation.

In addition to the amazing spectacle of the races, this year’s event has scheduled Jersey Boys star, Joseph Leo Bwarie in attendance, to sing the National Anthem. Throw in a Porsche Sports Car Exhibit, and the general excitement of the whole event, and you are in store for a day you will remember for quite some time.

Tickets are available at Harris Teeter, and you can visit the Gold Cup website for more information.
