The event is Saturday, Feb. 23, 2013 at the Ambridge Event Center, 1333 NE MLK Jr. Blvd. The family portion of the event is from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.; the adult activities will be from 6-10 p.m. All day passes are $10 and we are asking people to bring 3 non-perishable food items that will be donated to the needy in our community.
Some of the exciting activities being planned include hair battles between local barbers and stylists to see who will hold bragging rights – and a trophy – until the competition next year. We will also offer children free or low-cost hair cuts and the opportunity to participate in our fashion shows. We are organizing a panel of experts to answer hair questions from parents. And we will have numerous activities for children, a marketplace of local vendors and demonstrations that showcase the talents of our area youth.
The HAIRitage Jubilee will also have several special guest appearances at the event, including. award-winning writer and poet, S. Renee Mitchell, who will lead an empowering arts-and-crafts project for children and participate in a reading and signing of her new book The Awakening of Sharyn: A Shy & Brown SUPER GYRL.
