Description

Every fall, the world's largest Wizard of Oz Festival takes over downtown Chesterton, Indianapolis, transforming the small town into L. Frank Baum's Emerald City with witches, scarecrows, lions, Munchkins and, of course many a Dorothy in near-identical blue and white check dresses. The kooky event, organized by the town's Yellow Brick Road shop, draws an 80,000-strong crowd of Oz pilgrims each year. Highlights include an Oz parade, Dorothy's birthday bash, the Oz Idol singing talent show, lookalike contests and meet and greets with the cast of the cult movie.
