With the weather very much in Winter Wonderland mode on the Oregon Coast, the timing could not be more perfect for the Mad Hatter Tea Party, set for Tuesday, Feb. 20, at the Newport 60+ Activity Center.

Returning for its seventh year, the event offers two hours of fashion, fun and frivolity for all. Guests are encouraged to dress in their brightest, most mismatched “Mad Hattire” before sitting down to hot tea from fanciful pots and an array of festive finger foods — some of which are guaranteed to make you larger.

Mad Hatter models will showcase local store fashions from New 4 You, both practical and wild. Festivities will conclude with a drawing for free door-mouse prizes graciously provided by New 4 You. There will be a Best Hat Award, so be sure to sport your finest lid.

The party will run from 1 to 3 pm at the center, located at 20 SE 2nd Street. Admission is by suggested donation of $5. There are only so many seats to be had, so call 541 265-9617 to reserve your seat and don’t be late for this very important date.
