New Event At Retrofest

Retrofest organizers are looking for a few good women.

Miss Retrofest is a new program and the brainchild of Jaclyn Gillier, the Marketing Director of the Downtown Chatham Centre.

Gillier says the idea came to her as she watched people shop at the DCC. “I’ve always enjoyed retro fashion and it’s something to encourage more women participation¬†in Retrofest, because it’s a family event.”

The winner will get a shopping spree, a make-over a photoshoot and ride as a guest of honour in the Friday night cruise.
