Melbourne Cup parties abounded in Brisbane. Were you caught at one?

Brisbane was in fine form yesterday as Melbourne Cup festivities swept across our fair city.

Bubbles flowed, hats were donned and punters indulged in a cheeky bet as Brisbane lads and ladies put their best fashion foot forward to celebrate the race that stops the nation.

From all the track-side glamor at Brisbane Racing Club, pool-side frivolity at Soleil Pool Bar and elegant affairs at Bacchus and Brisbane Marriott Hotel, all the excitement and photos of the day were captured by the bmag team.
