‘Fun Fashion Show’

When: Saturday, Sept. 10 at 4:30 p.m.

Where: Main Street Stage.

Do you have the “perfect outfit” that says you are cute, clever, funny, crazy, outrageous —or can you look like Dolly Parton, Elvis, one of the X-men or Donald Duck? If so we’re looking for you. We’re looking for the “greatest fashion statement in town.”

Two age classes: 17 and under and 18 and over.

There will be a $50 prize for “best in show” in each category.

So, get your best outfit together and we’ll see you at the Schell City Fall Festival.
