MARYSVILLE – Tickets are available for the Marysville Strawberry Festival fashion show that features model citizens strutting to raise funds for student scholarships and showing off the latest summer fashions from local stores.

The annual April Friesner Memorial Royalty Fashion Show and Scholarship Fundraiser Luncheon is at noon June 11 in the Marysville Opera House, 1225 3rd St. The fashion show is an early attraction amid 10 days of Strawberry Festival fun.

Notable community members will model fashions. Lunch is being provided by Bleachers Grill at Cedarcrest Golf Course, along with entertaining surprise fundraiser activity planned. Festival teen royalty members and board members will be on hand.

Tickets are $25, or $120 for a table of 6.

Pre-purchase tickets at the Maryfest Office, several 3rd Street businesses, or contact Leslie Buell at 425-268-5285 or email labuell@frontier.com. You can also buy tickets online at www.maryfest.org.

The Strawberry Festival has provided scholarships to members of the Strawberry Festival Royal Court since 1968.

“We invite all past royalty to come and share their memories and experiences,” Buell said. “If you have any of your royal attire, bring it for others to see. Royalty queens and princesses are the stars of the event.”
