‘Donald Trump’ to attend American Night

Alexandra Park’s popular American Night is back - with Friday, 20 April promising to be a star-spangled night of delicious American-style food, exciting harness racing action, classic cars, and even a hot dog eating competition.

What’s more American Night will be attended and promoted by leading Donald Trump impersonator, Alex Sparrow. The Kiwi made an appearance in person at Alexandra Park’s American Night last year, before competing in Los Angeles in the ‘King of Trumps’ after being ranked as one of the world’s top 10 Donald Trump impersonators.

“It’s great to have ‘Donald Trump’ back for American Night as he was a huge hit last year. People will again be lining up to have their photo with ‘the President’. He’s also helping us to promote the event over the coming weeks,” says Joel Reichardt, Sales & Marketing Manager at Alexandra Park.

New this year will be the hot dog eating competition with some great cash prizes to be won in both the professional and amateur leagues. Mr Reichardt says hot dog eating competitions are hugely popular in the US with the current champion putting away 72 hot dogs in 10 minutes! For further information visit:

American Night hospitality packages for the all-you-can-eat US-inspired buffet range from $60 to $125 per person. Promoted as a night in the Hamptons at Top of the Park and a stroll through New Orleans with a funky Jazz band in the Tasman Room, the best of the US will be served up in both venues.

“Last year American Night was phenomenally popular and so much fun. We’re expecting even more interest this year. Subsequently, we’re encouraging people to book their tables now as 20 April will definitely sell out,” says Sales & Events Coordinator Danielle Upton.

General admission into Alexandra Park as well as car-parking and race books remain free on the night. Other internationally-themed cuisine race nights at Alexandra Park include Mexican Night on 4 May and French Night on 25 May.
