Pin-up Picnic - Retro Style Summer’s End in Poznań

Polka-dot dresses, playful stockings, carmine lips and flirty glances from underneath long eyelashes - all to the sound of rockabilly music of the early fifties. The atmosphere of those lazy, hazy, crazy day will return again next Saturday at Poznań Citadel, during the Third Annual Pin-up Picnic.

In a fun atmosphere which will take you back to the age of rockabilly, the family picnic will take place on August 31st - the last Saturday of the summer holidays, in the Poznań Citadel. On the lawn nearby Umberto Restaurant (opposite the Museum of Arms)  the Third Annual Pinup Picnic will take place.

The highlight of the day will be the live makeovers. A few lucky ladies - previously selected in an online casting - will get a chance to be transformed into a real pin up style diva.  In addition, ladies who are so attired can enter an open Miss Pin-up Pageant. All participants must register no later than 12.30 on the day of the event to join the pin-up fun.

The latter will provide a unique opportunity to pick up some pin-up style clothes, accessories and even delicacies. Kids will be happy to hear there will be a candy workshop to take part in. As for the gentlemen, if they can peel their eyes away from our lovely Miss Pin-up Pageant contestants for a moment or two, they will be able to feel like James Dean by experiencing the excitement of authentic Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

At 3.30 p.m. a performance from Grease Dance Theatre will headline the event, which will be concluded with a musical finale  - a Hot Lips concert at 5 p.m.
