ELKHART — The fourth annual Trudge for Suds brought out many participants in their 1980s best Saturday, Feb. 23, at eight downtown bars and restaurants.

Among the activities was a 1985-themed costume contest.

The organizers, Pillars of Elkhart, hoped to attract about 1,000 participants, up from last year’s 600 to 800.

The friends are seventh-graders at Haven Middle School in Evanston, which has been at the center of a controversy over its dress code. Parents and students, including these girls, complain that the school's restrictions on girls' attire, including leggings, is inconsistent and targets girls with certain body types.
