Guest compere, the television presenter Sarah Travers, will no doubt pass on some of her style secrets while escorting models around the town centre, visiting cafes, restaurants and the plaza.

Enjoy a showcase of dazzling dresses, sensational shoes and trendsetting tops - to name but a few - to really get you into the spring spirit.

You can also enjoy music, games and giveaways with renowned DJ, Gareth Stewart, as he rocks the plaza with the Cool FM Roadshow Bus. With exclusive discounts from participating retailers, it’s not one to miss.

“I am a keen fashionista, myself, and am proud that Portadown has a fantastic variety of shops - offering something for everyone,” commented Councillor Sharon Haughey Grimley, chair of the economic development and regeneration committee at Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council.

“Our local shops and boutiques are very unique and I am delighted they are getting to showcase their wares at such an exciting event.”

Among the retailers taking part will be The Wardrobe, Blue Inc, Rhubarb, Hanger 13, Sitara Morgan, Peacocks, The Edinburgh Woollen Mill, The Bottom Drawer, Kabra, Ellie Meg, Benetton, JR McMahon, SD Kells, McQuillans, Tom Morrow and Statement Menswear.

Come on down and enjoy the fun.

The event will take place from 11am to 3pm.
