This year’s contests range from best pie, heaviest vegetable, and tastiest tomato to best homemade ice cream, best honey, best mumbo sauce, and best home brew and best wine, as well as kids photography and cupcake, jams and jellies, pickles, and more.
New to the contest roster for 2017 are Best Kids’ Cupcake, Best Pupusa, watermelon seed spitting, whisker wars, and double-dutch! There is absolutely something for everyone, which is why folks continue to show up.
