Fourth Annual Festival Sticks with Duct Tape

Duct Tape Festival to Showcase Dad's Favorite Tool and Feature New Laser Light Show over Father's Day Weekend

Calling all duct tape enthusiasts! Roll on down to the fourth annual Avon Heritage Duct Tape Festival to honor the beloved fix-all known for its million and one uses.

The three-day celebration - beginning Friday, June 15, 2007 - encourages duct tape fanatics, artists, kids and adults to salute America's favorite adhesive. The festivities kick-off Friday at 4:00 p.m. at Veteran's Memorial Park in Avon, Ohio, and feature everything duct tape - from sculptures and crafts to fashion and games. There is even a parade where all of the floats are made almost entirely of duct tape.

Hosted in the "Duct Tape Capital" of the world and home of Duck® brand duct tape - Avon, Ohio - the celebration will boast traditional festival favorites, including rides, food, games and live entertainment. As the perfect celebration for Father's Day weekend, the Avon Heritage Duct Tape Festival not only showcases Dad's favorite fix-all, but this year will also light up the sky with a laser light show.

Duct tape celebrities and artists will be on-hand to share their knowledge and talent with attendees - offering festivalgoers the opportunity to create duct tape crafts, such as roses and wallets, and play duct tape games.

Henkel Corporation, marketer of Duck® brand duct tape, and title sponsor of the event, will celebrate the sticky stuff with a unique display of numerous duct tape sculptures and fashions created by local artists. Musical performances and booths from local vendors and organizations will also be on-site.
