ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - There's an old saying that goes, if you want to get ahead, get a hat. You could find plenty of those today in Forest Park. The 23rd annual hat luncheon is a chance for folks to tip their caps and raise some funds for Forest Park Forever, the organization that is responsible for maintaining the public park.

The money raised from today's event helps keep the 500 acre forest park vibrant for the more than 13-million visitors each year. On Thursday there were tip-top prizes for categories like homemade, whimsical and vintage hats.
