Fashion, car showcase to highlight Goshen's First Fridays

GOSHEN — Fashion and four-wheeled fineness will highlight downtown Goshen’s First Fridays event this week.

“Live” mannequins — human beings being very, very still, basically — will be on display downtown as part of “A High Fashion Tour.” Mannequins will be on hand at Gift of G.A.B., Jules Boutique, l.o.l health & fitness studio, Salon J, Ten Thousand Villages and Woldruff’s Footwear and Apparel. Scavenger hunt items can also be found in these businesses, as well as at Maple City Market, Reverie and Spacious Heart Yoga.

The fashion tour will take place from 5 to 9 p.m.

Friday’s festivities will also include the seventh-annual “Porsches to GOshen” event. Organizers say close to 100 Porsches will be on display on West Lincoln Avenue between Third and Main streets. The show will take place from 6 to 8:30 p.m., with awards to be presented at 7 p.m. The public will have the opportunity to cast votes for a Peoples’ Choice Award.

The Porsche Club of Michiana requests a $15 donation per car from those showing their vehicles. The donations will support the clubs annual School Supply Give-Away. Donations will be collected as the Porsches arrive for the show between 5 and 6 p.m.
