The Kentucky Derby is so much more than a horse race. It's an iconic celebration of all things inherently Southern. Gentlemen wear seersucker suits and drink mint juleps out of pewter cups. Ladies wear flowered dresses and outrageous hats. Horses are showered with roses.

If you're not planning a trip to Louisville, there are Derby watch parties all over South Florida where you can drink bourbon, watch the "fastest two minutes in sports" and wear a silly hat. What? You don't have a hat? You still have plenty of time to get creative. Just pick up the phone, order a pizza from Pizza Hut and break out the glue and scissors.

While you're at it, ask for an order of "Thoroughbred sticks". They're the chain's regular breadsticks renamed in honor of Derby Day and they're just $2 when you purchase a large pizza online at pizzahut.com, using promo code STICKS until May 3.

Here are a bunch of Derby hats, made from Pizza Hut and WingStreet boxes for inspiration. They've all been designed by Angela Bacskocky and will be displayed on the infield on race day.

A futuristic number for Derby Day.

This feminine hat pays tribute to the Derby's nickname, "the run for the roses".

You can never go wrong with a classic style.
