It’s time again for crafters, putterers and painters to get ready for Cookstown’s annual Creative Chair Challenge. It’s open to everyone and anyone, any age, who can lay hands on an old discarded chair and make it a thing of wonder. Entries are displayed, and winners announced, during the Cookstown Wing Ding street festival, June 6 and 7.
Entries have to be submitted by May 23 with a $10 fee. If decorating your chair isn’t fun enough, the Cookstown Chamber of Commerce provides some pretty nifty prizes for the winners (valued last year at about $200). You can even offer your chair for sale after the contest. Last years’ entries can be viewed online.
