A Wedding Dress Exposition will offer a glimpse into wedding traditions from the 1800’s through today.  Wedding celebrations are a reflection of the times and rich diverse cultures in which they occur. We are looking to display a variety of items in the historic Portal School House in downtown Papillion during Papillion Days. All items will be covered by insurance. Please submit your entries by May 1st. Contact Andrea Kellett @ 402-305-9980.
