Running of the...Brides

Ran a quick errand to Filene's late this evening
and saw this signand then all these wedding dresses
{1300 - 2500 from which to choose}.
Tomorrow, Friday, January 29
is the "Running of the Brides" event in our city.
Read all about it here.
A mother and daughter (from Michigan) started the line
outside the store...
it currently is 12 degrees and forecast to dip to 7 degrees tonight.
If you don't want to freeze your hiney, but hope to purchase a dress,
the doors open at 8 am.
What to expect?
"Customers run full speed to the racks;
they grab as many dresses as their arms will hold.
It takes less than sixty seconds for the racks
to be stripped bare; the record is 36 seconds."
Good luck, indeed!
