It was fanfare at the 2019 Royal Ascot Goats race that got underway Saturday at Speke Resort Munyonyo lakeside.
Uganda’s most popular social event reclaimed its spot on the social scene as the year’s biggest fete curtsey of Tusker Malt Lager.
The competitions included dress competitions, best goat name, best goat impression, best pose, beer drinking and hot dog eating competitions, among others.
The winners were awarded money prizes, tickets including to Europe, gift vouchers and outings at the Ruparelia owned hotels and resorts.
Winning goat racers too earned their owners cash prizes ranging from Shs1m to Sh4m.
Singers Lydia Jazmine and Ykee Benda closed the evening with sensational performances that got the crowd grooving like there is no tomorrow.
Proceeds from the event will go to cleaning up Kamwokya slum and availing it with basic amnesties.
