Sticky Situation 

That almighty staple in every dude's tool box is this weekend's showstopper at Avon's fifth annual Duct Tape Festival. And there's more to the sticky stuff than a quick patch job. For starters, exhibitors will unwrap 25,000 rolls of tape in 20 colors to create floats for tomorrow morning's parade from the town's Village Elementary to its middle school. They'll also make wallets and photo frames in the arts-and-crafts tent and dresses and tuxes for the "Stuck on Prom" dance. In the "Save the Day" tent, videos will depict how duct tape has saved people's lives. And if you're one of the first 1,000 revelers to walk through the gates each day, you'll take home a free roll. The fest runs from 4 to 11 p.m. today, 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. tomorrow, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, at Veterans' Memorial Park, 38975 Detroit Road in Avon. Admission is free. Call 866-818-1116 or visit
Fri., June 13, 4-11 p.m.; Sat., June 14, 10 a.m.-11 p.m.; Sun., June 15, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., 2008
