Don’t Get Rid of Your Prom Dresses!

Pageant Flyer colorLadies, if we can have your attention for a moment. Please don’t get rid of your gorgeous prom dresses once prom season is over. You can wear it again (your parents will love that they’re getting their money’s worth out of your dress lol)! Keep that dress and wear it in the Pittsfield Fall Festival in August! You know you looked amazing in it once, so make sure to wow everyone one more time before you move onto the next year’s fashion!

Keep an eye on the local papers, Pike County Happenings, the Pittsfield Fall Festival Facebook page, and listen to WBBA to stay up to date on Fall Festival info. This is a great pageant to be a part of, don’t be shy, own that catwalk!
