Dress the Leaf Lady

Residents of Coalville ages 14 and up and invited to dress the city’s Leaf Dancer statue. Those interested should describe their ideas on a short written application to the City. People of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to submit their ideas.

The winning dresser will receive: a $25 thank-you gift from the City, a costume allowance of up to $20 and a brief bio and picture of their design on the City website. The redesign will last 10 weeks—from Friday, June 14, to Friday, August 16.

The dresser will also need to dress the Leaf Lady by midnight on Thursdays so a dressed statue is on display every Friday during the summer. Applications are available at the Coalville City Hall at 10 N. Main Street or online at .
