The CCAA is also inviting everyone, volunteers and attendees alike, to dress in 1920s attire to help make the Jazz Age come alive in the streets of downtown Logansport.

“Modern clothing is perfectly fine, also.”, festival organizer Lita Rouser stated in a prepared statement. “Having event patrons dress in a certain style is sometimes done at other festivals, such as a renaissance fair. The 1920s is called the jazz age, so we thought it would be fun to make the 20’s a visual part of this year’s event.”

CCAA recommends visiting www.dinnerandamurder.com/themes/1920s.htm for costume ideas. The Internet has several other 1920s clothing reference Web sites, as well.

The Med Flory Jazz and Blues Festival is scheduled May 15 and 16 at the corner of 4th and E. Market Street in downtown Logansport. The festival’s corporate sponsors are The Anderson, the Cass County Community Foundation, the Cass County Visitor’s Bureau, and Security Federal Savings Bank. For more information, visit www.floryfest.org or call the alliance office at 574-735-ARTS.
