Saturday, October 15 was a beautiful day to drink on a farm.

Such was the agenda for many affluent tri-state area twenty-somethings, who flock to New Jersey's Moorland Farms for the annual Far Hills Race Meeting, informally referred to as "The Hunt."

Sure, there's horse racing, and the event is a charity benefit for healthcare in the region, but the real attraction is the infamous tailgate that takes place every year in the infield. According to NJ.com, last year's event saw 37 arrests for disorderly behavior, and about 200 police officers were on hand this time around.

Below are some of the craziest sights from this year's race, which brought an estimated 35,000 visitors.
