Variety on tap at World of Women show

Women can go hog wild at the 16th annual World of Women show this weekend in Red Deer.

Women can go hog wild at the 16th annual World of Women show this weekend in Red Deer.

This year’s theme, “Homes, Hemlines and Harleys,” includes the display of 30 Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

Organizers Patrick and Sherall Kennedy run the show at Westerner Park’s Parkland Pavilion from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

“We’ll also have a number of renovation exhibits, and the balance will cover fashion and career choices, and pretty much everything the choices a woman makes in her lifetime,” Patrick Kennedy said.

Anita Wright of Toronto will guest star. She will talk about body shapes — apple, pear, square, circle — and how they influence what women should be wearing.

She will be on stage at 12:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, and 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Models will also strut the latest fashions during a one-hour show, which begins at 2 p.m. on both days.

Last year, 3,280 people attended.

Kennedy is looking for increased attendance if the weather is good, between 4,000 and 5,000 people.

Admission is $10 and free parking is on hand.

Children 12 and under get in free, if accompanied with an adult.

Last year’s admission included admission to the Reno Show, hosted by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association-Central Alberta inside the Prairie Pavilion. Kennedy said this year’s Reno Show was cancelled earlier this spring, which he said was disappointing.

“It was a nice fit,” Kennedy said.
