ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. -- Beautiful horses and jockeys and exciting races may be the draw to Arlington Park for the Million, but certainly not the only reason crowds pack in here on a hot August day.

There is also the music, food and party around the park.

The beverages and array of delectable dishes helped many folks forget about the steamy sun, and focus on the task at hand - the bets and the horses.

Many chose to watch the races inside the cool AC, but the common theme throughout the day – look smokin’ while you’re hot.

Matching couples, beautiful hats and beautiful people lining up for this year’s Fashion at the Races contest.
