Patriotic colors were in abundance at this year’s Avon Duck Tape Festival as the fashion show took on an All American theme for 2016.

Just in time for the Fourth of July, Avon’s 13th annual Duck Tape Festival and Parade struck a patriotic chord this year as an All-American theme headlined the show.

Contestants played up the USA theme big time with lots of creatively patriotic costuming prepared for the annual Fashion Show that took place the afternoon of Saturday, June 18.

But generously mixed in with the Uncle Sam’s and Betsy Rosses and Wonder Women were characters from outer space, Hollywood and every recess of the contestant’s imaginations.

21 floats took part in the annual Duck Tape parade from Avon High to Veteran’s Park Saturday morning and scores of competitors matched designs on the Fashion Show stage as the audience sounded out approval for the winners, including a Barberton foursome from Star Wars who took first place and the Kelly family from Parma whose irresistible duck costumes earned runner-up honors.
