If all that isn't enough, racegoers can enjoy Jockeys of France: “Move Like a Star Jockey,” in which racing fans are invited to take the seat of a jockey VR-style, and some simply délicieux French cuisine – from escargot to ratatouille – as well as wines from Burgundy and Bordeaux. If all that gets you in the spirit, there's also complimentary French-themed makeup, courtesy of Make Up For Ever, to help decorate you with a lovely tricolour and all things blue, white or red. Vive la France!
