Attend World Equestrian Games Celebrate 100 Days Ceremony From Anywhere In the World

As of tomorrow, our much anticipated World Equestrian Games are just 100 days away! It’s hard to believe it’s been 2.5 years since I started covering this event on Regarding Horses, and now it’s almost here.

In celebration, the WEG Foundation is throwing a big ol’ party in downtown Lexington tomorrow to commemorate 100 days until the opening ceremonies.

I’m going to be there for it. Are you?

Ok, I will only sort of be there. Thanks to the joys of the internet and live video streaming, we can all celebrate the coming of WEG from wherever we are in the world. (and a big thanks to Glenn the Geek and the Horse Radio Network for getting the hook up and sharing it with us).

Celebrate 100 Days WEG Event

In celebration of the final countdown, Lexington's Fifth Third Pavilion at Cheapside Park will be transformed into a preview of things to come from September 25-October 10, 2010, when the world championships in eight equestrian sports are contested at the Kentucky Horse Park. Festivities are planned throughout the entire day, including "A Taste of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games" featuring live music and a culinary preview of the Games. It will be complemented by "A Showcase of Destinations" offering a sneak peek at the four major destinations points available to all Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games ticket holders.

After viewing the broadcast on on June 17, visitors can also check out Alltech's new Games microsite set to go live that day. The new microsite will enable guests to preview the Alltech Experience Pavilion to be on the grounds of the Games via an interactive map as well as explore the sights, sounds, tastes, and other experiences of the Games through a variety of dynamic media.

Watch WEG Celebrate 100 Days Festivities Live Online

The live video stream will begin at 11 a.m. EST tomorrow, June 17 with the premiere of "Kentucky Awaits," the newest promotional video. It will culminate with the noon announcement of the Alltech Fortnight Festival entertainment line-up for the 16 nights of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.

And, you can watch it all right here! So bookmark this post and be sure to come back tomorrow and tune in to the festivities with me. It’s like a virtual WEG party hosted by Regarding Horses. Lovin’ it!
