Festival of the Chairs!
Everyone in Warren County looks forward to the Jaycees 4th of July Parade. Everyone wants to make sure they have a great spot for the parade so they put their chairs out on the curb prior to the parade. Well, Warren Main Street says if you are going to put your chair out there, then why dont you decorate it!
The Organization Committee of Warren Main Street is promoting the first- ever Festival of the Chairs, a chair-decorating contest. An application to enter a chair can be found on-line on this site or you may pick up an application at The Warren Emporium, Virg-Ann Flower Shop, Crones Drug Store, all five Warren County locations of Northwest Savings Bank, Reliable Furniture and the Warren Main Street Office.
Chairs must be placed along the parade route on Pennsylvania Avenue between East Street and Laurel Street. Entries cannot take up an area more than 3 feet by 3 feet and must be safe for someone to occupy (child or adult). The chairs will be judged in one of three design categories: Most Artistic, Most Patriotic or Most Unusual. The contestant must choose one category. There are adult (19 and over) and youth (18 and under) divisions. Judging will take place on Friday, July 2nd 2004, between 8 PM and 10 PM rain or shine.
