This year’s Fashion on the Ave event, has been postponed to Wednesday, Sept. 16 due to rain, but Thursday’s party at Delamar went ahead as planned and a great crowd assembled to celebrate both the event and its organizer, Geri Corrigan.
“We really wanted to hold off because this year there are several more outdoor activities associated with the event, including live music, fitness demonstrations and even a cigar sampling by Nat Sherman,” Corrigan said on Thursday at the Delamar, adding that the event has several aspects that will appeal to men.
The event will also feature a long list of popular food trucks. “Each year Fashion on the Ave has been elevated. It’s become a favorite town event,” Corrigan said.
