To be held on May 24 the fashion parade is part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Manning Valley Historical Society. 

A large and colourful collection of antique and vintage clothing has been collected locally and will be modelled by volunteer models on the day. There will be a selection of day, evening, bridal and recreational clothing on show. Some of the older gowns which are too delicate to wear will be on show on mannequins and there will also be a display of lace, shoes, accessories and lingerie.

The not to be missed event will take place on May 24 at Wingham Memorial Services Club. Tickets are just $20 for the fashion parade and afternoon tea.
