Pendland said the Baby Show is a casual wear event and kids will be judged on personality and natural beauty. No make-up or pageant dresses please.
“The show itself will begin at 10 a.m. on the main stage,” she said. “We would like to encourage all parents to dress the kids in costumes reflecting our rural heritage.”
