COUNTDOWN TO THE CELEBRATION

COUNTDOWN TO THE CELEBRATION

Poster Gallery

The WBCA Poster Unveiling has become one of the most colorful events leading up to the start of the Celebration. Since 1982, WBCA Presidents have selected local and regional artists to create original pieces to be used as the official commemorative poster. The commemorative posters are used to promote our city, the celebration and is used as the cover for the WBCA Program Book and invitations. The WBCA Posters as well as any other WBCA souvenirs may be purchased at the WBCA office at 1819 E. Hillside Road.
