The 2nd Tape and Tarp Ball was held at the Blue Loon, with the hot local music of the Skidmarks, featuring guitarist and vocalist Gary Westcott, formerly of The Glass Bead Game. Contestants created their own ball attire from tarps, visqueen, or lots of duct tape and joined the spectacle! There was lots of good silly fun while supporting the John Trigg Ester Library!

All funds raised went to benefit the John Trigg Ester Library!
