Wettenberg - 2007








Bo Persson sends this vidclip from Wettenberg '07:

"This is the so called Petticoat Competition that is the big thing of the third day of the festival.
The ladies are asked why they like 1950s fashion, where they found their dress and where they are from."

Wettenberg - 2008:


"Some links to video clips from the 2008 Golden Oldies in Wettenberg:

#1    #2   #3   #4   #5   #6   #7

"The first five are from the petticoat competition - what a brilliant concept; I wonder how much you have to pay to be a judge.
The sixth one features dancing in the street, and the last is a slide show, big on vintage cars, light on petticoats."

Wettenberg - 2013:


Wettenberg 2004:


  Bo Persson:  Miss Petticoat 2019. 

"A great part of her victory was that her dress
 is 61 years old; it belongs to her grandmother. 

Golden Oldies Wettenberg will be back 24-26 July 2020."

ED: We understand that it is now not The Era, but if she was to wear
such a delightful  antique dress,  it would have been nice to have seen
an antique petti to go with it, and certainty not not beneath the hem.
