Though there were some refreshment and informational booths set up from the Hopkins County Central High School’s Storm football team, Y106.9, and others, the main events of the day were the Best Steak Competition, the BBQ Cook-Off, and the Car Show Competition.

For the cooking contest, a panel of judges that was comprised of several public officials, including Hopkins County Judge-Executive, Donnie Carroll, Senator Jerry Rhoads, Dawson Springs Mayor, Ross Workman, Mortons Gap Mayor, Frank Stafford, and several others, got to taste each of the competitors’ dishes and whittled them down to one winner for the best BBQ and one winner for the best steak. To make the contest fair, the identity of the cook who prepared each dish was given as a number to the judges rather than a name.

Around 12:15pm, the winners of the cooking contests were announced by Earlington’s Mayor, Mike Seiber. A list of the winners is as follows: 

Best BBQ: Madisonville resident, Robert Patterson
Best Steak and $500 Prize: Earlington residents, Tony Scisney and DiEshia Myers

Following the cooking contests, the winners out of the approximately 20 show cars were announced by Mayor Seiber on the City Park’s stage area. Trophies for the cars were given in the three categories. The name of each category, its winner, and the make and model of their respective winning vehicles are as follows:

“People’s Choice”—Jeff Creekmur (1968 Chevelle SS)
“Participant’s Choice”—Big Al (1954 Chevy Bel Air)
“Mayor’s Choice”—Jimmy Smith (1939 Chevy)

Overall, the 3rd Annual Earlington Octoberfest seemed to be a big success for everyone in attendance—both young and old—and iSurf News looks forward to attending the festival next year.
