But of course, the most important question of the weekend wasn't "Who won the queen contest?" It was "Who are the prettiest babies in the county?"
Three judges had the unenviable task of choosing the winners of this year's Pretty Baby Contest Sunday evening at the Community Building. Ninety contestants across 12 groups vied for first and second place trophies, as well as the titles of best hair, brightest eyes and prettiest smile.
Master of ceremonies Jeff Rich said he has served in his current capacity for a number of years, but would never want the task of being a judge.
"We all know they're all winners," Rich said.
Contest director Heather Poynter got the job of running the show as sort of a last minute thing, but the show went off without a hitch with her at the helm. However, she preferred to give the credit to everyone involved.
"It went smooth," Poynter said. "Jeff did a fantastic job. I think we had a great turnout."
This was the first year for the baby contest to be part of pre-fair activities, having taken place on the last Saturday of the fair in the past. The move was made to get more involvement.
