The Kentucky Derby is almost upon us and an Allentown fashion store is getting into the spirit of "Derby Day."

"RC Moore for the Unique Individual" is holding an inaugural block party and Kentucky Derby Hat Contest Saturday.

Owner Rose Ellen Moore started making hats in 2009.

So why celebrate derby hats?

"Because they're fabulous! What's not fabulous about a derby hat? A hat makes you feel feminine and wonderful and it's unique just like the individual," she said.

Moore is also a proponent of women-owned and women-related business which will be highlighted Saturday =.

Proceeds from the party will benefit military families.
