This year’s Banana Festival is proud to continue a very interesting event for girls and ladies of all ages, the Banana Bonnet Contest. The contest will be held at The Keg Restaurant Banquet Room on Monday, September 16, 2013 at 5:00 P.M. The winners will be announced at 5:15 p.m. You may drop off your bonnett at Sarah Nicole Salon & Spa on Lake Street by noon on Saturday , Sept 14 or by 4:45 at the Keg Restaurant on Monday the 16th. Everyone is invited to come and cheer for their favorite bonnet or hat. It will be a very enjoyable time.
Contestants will be judged on “best theme,” “most original,” and “most comical.” The winner of each category will receive $25. The three winners will ride in the Grand Parade on Saturday, September 21, 2013.
Participants are invited to wear their hats throughout the festival events. Families are encouraged to bring in banana bonnets from contests years ago to be featured in a display during the Banana Festival “in memory” or “in honor of” their loved ones. Everyone's bonnetts may be displayed in the window of Evans Total Care throughout the Festival Events. For more information, call Sarah Hutchins at 270-472-5111 or Danna Williamson at 731-479-3006.
