Zombies. What ultimately made cinched the deal for me (and the reason I'll be going back every year if I can) is that Saratoga Springs itself is just a little bit on the quirky side, probably because it's a college town, too. So, I LOVED the fact that on Sunday night dozens upon dozens of teens/college kids descended upon the town in full-on zombie make-up and dress. All night, I kept telling the zombies just how cute they were. I'm sure that's not the reaction they wanted, but how cool were they to do that amidst the leather-y, gold-adorned yuppie set that makes up Saratoga's race-goers?! Kind of super cool.
