Avon Heritage Duct Tape Festival

Duct tape has long been said to be the ultimate DIY bandage when it comes to fixing things, but have you ever wondered how it could be used to make a work of art? The Avon Duct Tape Festival kicks off its annual celebration of the sticky substance today at Veteran’s Memorial Park, featuring a collection of duct tape-themed sculptures, fashion accessories, games and live entertainment. Highlighted by the Duct Tape Parade that halts Avon traffic as it makes its way through the city, the event is a real blast. Promoters even encourage festival-goers to break out their favorite tape and don a costume creation of their own. Those who do will have an opportunity to show it off — and potentially win tickets to see Justin Bieber — at Saturday afternoon’s “Project Runway Fashion Show” on the main stage. (Jacob DeSmit)
