Incoming: The Best Dressed Showcase

Getting ready for Dickens of a Christmas 2018!


by Sara Vogt - September 13, 2018

Wellsboro will be hosting their 35th Dickens of a Christmas on Saturday, December 1st. Visitors spend the day on beautiful Main Street in Victorian time-period costume with friends as vendors hawk their wares. The entire town gets into the festivities with traditional music, and Christmas Carols as guests from all over the country join in the celebration! The Main Street Victorian Strolls are at 10:00 am and then again at 2:00 pm (immediately following the Best Dressed Showcase).

On this broadcast, Home Page Vice-President, Sara Vogt, spoke with Christine Moore of Christine A. Moore Millinery, about what her company will be doing to encourage you to come and join in on the fun this year! Sara also found out from last year’s second place winner, Jan Stiner, how he felt when he was awarded a gift certificate for a Christine A Moore hat. Seeing that it was Christmas time, he offered the certificate to his wife so she could have a hat made for her. BUT is that the end of the story? Watch this broadcast to find out what Christine is offering those who join in on the fun this year and who did get a hat at Jan’s home on Christmas morning?

Wellsboro Home Page is delighted to sponsor the Best Dressed Showcase again this year! Last year’s showcase drew over 100 participants. Men, boys, girls, and of course the ladies, wowed audience members and judges with their unique take on Victorian Era styles. Many more just came to take a step back in time by enjoying the presentations or capturing the moment on their phone camera.

John Vogt, Home Page’s President, will be the master of ceremonies, joined on stage by Christine A. Moore, owner of Christine A. Moore Millinery of New York. Christine will be providing expert commentary and history on the costumes showcased. Our panel of judges will have the daunting task of selecting ‘The Best Dressed” for Dickens 2018’.

The winning lad or lass will receive a handsome gift basket of goods donated by Wellsboro merchants and a custom-made hat from Christine A. Moore Millinery. This first place prize valued at over $1,000.00 will be presented to the best dressed! Other fun surprises will be given out as well! For example, the second place winner will receive a gift certificate for a custom-made Christine A. Moore hat and dinner for two at the Penn Wells Hotel that evening. There will also be prizes awarded to the third, fourth and fifth place participants.

Past participants have dressed as Victorian ladies, gentlemen, children, couples, Dickens characters and of course families! Winners can come from any of these groups.

There is no pre-registration required. Just stop by the Deane Center Lobby on Saturday, December 1st between 9:30 am to 12:00 pm and sign up. However, if you like, you may pre-register by emailing Sara with your name and contact information.

Then dressed in your finest Dickens attire, gather at the outdoor performance space by the Deane Center located at the corner of Main Street and Central Avenue at 1:00 PM and let the festivities begin! If there is inclement weather, judging will take place inside the Deane Center.

Then, immediately following the announcement of the winners, please join us for the last Dickens stroll of the day down Main Street!
