1860's Period Fashion Show - August 29,2004
The weatherman predicted rain for this date but as usual he/she didn't know what they were talking about. The weather was hot and muggy but stayed sunny all day. The ladies in the 1860's dresses must have been uncomfortable under all those heavy dresses but there were no major complaints. The church was fully seated by the 2:00 PM show and while the show was going on other ladies were setting up the refreshments for the following tea. Susan and Judi from the Bedminster area spent the afternoon riding their horses throughout the village in period costume which also added to the festive nature of the event. It was a welcome sight to see the village so alive with visitors and participants.
The VanCampen's house porch was the site of the 1860's "Victoria's Secret" exhibition. I guess that no-one present, including any male was willing to go up in front of the audience for a live demo.
