The characters, costumes and charm of the TV series “Downton Abbey” were replicated at Del Mar Community Connections’ event titled “High Tea and Parade of Fashions” held April 3 in St. Peter’s Parish Hall, Del Mar.

The event included a “Downton” hat contest, a music and memories contest, “high tea” refreshments, and a fashion show sponsored by Chico’s and White House/Black Market. Local residents served as models. Music was provided by pianist Lori Ritman. Guests were encouraged to wear their best Downton era vintage attire.
