Wellsboro Home Page is sponsoring the Fourth Annual Dickens Best Dressed Showcase being held on Saturday, Dec. 7, during the 36th Annual Dickens of A Christmas celebration in Wellsboro, a three-day event.

Last year’s showcase drew more than 50 participants. Ladies, gentlemen, boys and girls wowed audience members and judges with their unique take on Victorian Era styles. Many others came to take a step back in time by enjoying the presentations or capturing the moment on their camera phones.

Registration for the 2019 showcase will begin at 10 a.m. and end at noon on Saturday, Dec. 7, in the Deane Center lobby at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. Contestants can enter as individuals, couples, siblings, families and friends.

At 1 p.m. on Dec. 7, those entered in this year's showcase, dressed in their finest Victorian fashions, will gather at the Deane Center’s outdoor stage and performance area on the corner of Main Street and Central Avenue. In case of inclement weather, the showcase will take place inside the Deane Center.

On stage will be Christine A. Moore, owner of Christine A. Moore Millinery of New York City. She will provide expert commentary and history about the costumes worn by the contestants. The judges will then have the daunting task of selecting ‘The Best Dressed” for Dickens 2019. Blake R. Seidel will serve as master of ceremonies.

Each of the two top winners will receive a handsome gift basket of goods donated by Wellsboro merchants and a custom-made hat from Christine A. Moore Millinery. The first place prize is valued at more than $1,000. Prizes will also be awarded to other participants. Immediately following the announcement of the winners, all contestants will be invited to be in the 2 p.m. Victorian Stroll on Main Street.
