Have a favorite hat, but nowhere to wear it?
Well, Downtown Hillsborough says put on that hat and come downtown for Ladies’ Night Out: Hats Off To Spring on Thursday, April 28, from 6 to 9 p.m.
As you enter the historic district, start your evening by stopping by one of our four greeting stations:
S. Churton Street in front of Weaver Street Market
N. Churton Street in front of the Hillsborough Police Station
E. King Street in front of Vintage Revival Shops
W. King Street in front of Carolina Game & Fish
Here local dignitaries will hand you a menu of events and specials available throughout the evening at participating downtown merchants. Shops throughout downtown Hillsborough will have tastings, pampering, specials, music and fun for the ladies centered on the flowering beauty of spring. Many merchants will also have Mother’s Day wish lists and items perfect for graduation gifts. Lantern luminaries will mark participating downtown businesses.
At 7:15 p.m., ladies who want to enter the hat contest should go to the contest table located on the Old County Courthouse grounds at the corner of East King and Churton streets. There, ladies can register for the hat contest and show off their hat to the distinguished judges, which will include Hillsborough Mayor Tom Stevens in his own favorite Derby hat. At 8 p.m., winners in three hat categories—best vintage hat; most creative hat; and fanciest hat—will be announced and each awarded a wonderful gift basket from Downtown Hillsborough Merchants. The News of Orange will also be on hand to take pictures of the hats for those who wish.
