Marking the 100th anniversary of Mr. Peanut, Peanut Pals will participate this year as well. The organization will have related merchandise on display and for sale.
Dixie Peachy, show chairperson for all 33 years, said many patrons view it as a reunion, each year joining friends for shopping and catch-up time over a meal or refreshments. The cafeteria will be serving barbecue and Brunswick stew, chicken salad and homemade desserts.
A weekend getaway to the Outer Banks will be raffled during the show. Tickets are $5 each to be entered in a drawing for a weekend in Kill Devil Hills.
Tickets are available in advance from the Suffolk Art League office, 118 Bosley Ave., or by calling 925-0448.
Proceeds from the show support year-round activities of the Suffolk Art League, including exhibits, classes and workshops at the Suffolk Art Gallery, in Suffolk schools and now in several North Suffolk locations. It also offers lectures, bus excursions and performances. Scholarships are also available for students in grades 6 to 12 to begin or continue their artistic pursuit.
