A beloved Round Top tradition wrapped with a flourish as The Halles, PaperCity m a g a z i n e , a n d Round Top Publishers celebrated both the finale of the Round Top Spring Antiques & Design Show and 50 years of Festival Hill, aka the internationally known music conservatory Round Top Festival Institute. Gillie and Marc's life -size bronze Paparazzi Dogs greeted guests (courtesy exhibitor West Chelsea Contemporary), as a crowd of more than 250 assembled in The Halles' VIP Pavilion. On the menu: dinner, drinks, and dancing to Black Cat Choir.
