The evening will kick off with a Community Lantern Parade at 7:30 p.m. beginning at the James Center Atrium. At 9:00 p.m. models will present selected designs for the Wearable Art Fashion Show at the Martin Agency Patio. Wearable Art judges will announce their awards at the conclusion of the fashion show. The night will culminate with an awards ceremony at 11:00 p.m. where artists will receive recognition for Best in Show, Best in Green and People’s Choice.
