Duct tape fun in Avon this weekend

(Lorain County) - An annual Father's Day weekend tradition, the Duct Tape Festival in Avon is underway.

This is the 10th anniversary of the festival and will feature a fashion show. Event goers are encouraged to show up to the festival wearing an outfit made out of duct tape.

Two winners will receive four suite seats to the Justin Beiber concert in Cleveland, July 13th. Project Runway Season 11 star Michelle Lesniak Franklin will be a celebrity guest judge.

There was a parade at 10am Saturday. It started at Avon High School and ended at Veterans Memorial Park with floats that adhere to the "Decades of Duck Tape" theme.  Visitors came from as far away as Indiana, and Maryland.



Festival hours are from 11am to 11pm Saturday, and from 11am until 5pm Sunday. Admission and parking are free. The first 1,000 attendees each day will receive a roll of duck tape.
