Tradies if you have ever had trou­ble find­ing a lady, the an­nual Cen­tury Cranes Tradies and Ladies Race Day at the Cairns Jockey Club was the place to be. Some tradies and ladies trav­elled from as far as Mel­bourne to at­tend the highly an­tic­i­pated event, which also fell on St Pa­trick’s Day.

I spent the day along­side 100 other guests in a mar­quee for lo­cal ladies’ net­work­ing group She Means Busi­ness, which joined forces with lo­cal men’s net­work­ing group, Blokes and Busi­ness.

As with ev­ery race day, fash­ions are high on the agenda.

Cairns lo­cal lady Alyce Rigby was a true stand­out, wear­ing a full-length jump­suit matched with pointed Witch­ery shoes.

Her out­fit was in­spired by the beau­ti­ful FNQ trop­ics with vi­brant colours found in na­ture.

Alyce shared why she loves Cairns races: “Every­one just seems to em­brace their true in­di­vid­u­al­ity. I am em­pow­ered by oth­ers who come out of their shell and dare to be bold.”

Alyce may not have found her­self a tradie that day but she said there cer­tainly was some tal­ent on show.

“I had a great day out with my girls, tradie or not!”
