Looking beautiful, Lara signs autographs and poses for pictures at her table. The lines fto meet her are always long, but well worth the wait. 
WIth a lovely smile for all, Lara accepts admiration and questions from the audience at the cast reunion.

Lara with yours, truly . 
In a DS Recollections panel on Friday, John Karlen playfully distracts Lara by seductively slipping her blouse off her shoulder. Much to everyone's delight, she returns the favor distracting him as he attempts to answer fan's questions. With obvious affection for one another, these former colleagues were playful and philosophical in their discussion about past times while fans listened intently. 

Lara was onstage all three days of the festival, including participating in a Dark Shadows Recollections forum, along with Kathryn Leigh Scott and Jerry Lacy on Friday. On Saturday, she performed as Angelique with the Collinsport Players in a skit conceived by Peter Mac, entitled Bewitched Shadows.  Lara was on hand to meet fans and sign copies of her books and photos for the entire weekend and attended the banquet on Sunday evening. Other Dark Shadows stars attending the festival were Jonathan Frid, John Karlen, Marie
Wallace, Kathryn L Scott and Jerry Lacy.
