Pirates of the Caribbean make the Best Mannequins

Downtown Rochester held its fourth annual Rochester Posed event on Thursday, October 6, 2016. During the event nineteen participating businesses turned their storefront windows into live mannequin displays. This year’s theme for Rochester Posed was Classic Movies. Attendees were dazzled by a variety of mannequin displays including Star Wars, Harry Potter, Grease, and Forrest Gump.

“Rochester Posed is one of my favorite events said Stephanie Hellebuyck, Events Coordinator of the Rochester Downtown Development Authority. “It’s a huge hit with the community and it really wouldn’t be possible without the hard work of the downtown businesses and of course, all the volunteers.”
