A 4th of July costume contest brings a new twist to Cherry Day activities. Participants are encouraged to dress in red, white and blue, or in any attire that reflects the 4th of July or the Cherry Days theme, "Grounded in Our Roots."
Get creative, but remember Cherry Days is a family event!
Come to Paonia Town Park on July 4 dressed in your costume. Sign up at the Cherry Days booth by 1 p.m. and get an entry number. Sign-up is free. Then wander through the park, being friendly to everyone, because the judges will be quietly watching.
You won't know who they are, and you could be judged anywhere in the park.
Winners will be announced at 5 p.m. from the stage, and you must be present to win the prizes that will be awarded for this event.
