Five young Bourbon ladies are candidates for the Jr. Miss Bourbon crown that will be presented Friday evening at the Bourbon Booster Club’s Fall Festival. The girls and their sponsors are Destini Sandberg sponsored by Planet Sub; Hannah Hix sponsored by Sinks Pharmacy; Brooklyn Bouse sponsored by Town and Country Bank; Elayna Watring sponsored by Bremer Hardware and Lumber; and Izzabella Woodcock sponsored by On The Run.
The girls have posters and vote cans out at their sponsor’s business places and are doing community service for extra points in the judging. Votes are only one cent each and you may vote as often as you wish. The crowning will be at 8 p.m. Friday evening.
Jim Counts and friends will be playing music in the Community Center and “Gates of Glory” will be on center stage in Festival Park.
The parade is at 6 p.m. with all entries lining up near the Bourbon Elementary School by 5:30 p.m. Trophies will be awarded in three categories: churches, organizations and businesses. There will be games, food, those famous Bourbon fish sandwiches, entertainment and vendors on the Festival grounds and inside the center. Come early and stay late for an evening of food, fun and fellowship.
Saturday starts off with breakfast by the Class of 2022, followed by the Bourbon Barbecue Contest and Car Show.
There will be live music, and another time of good food and entertainment.
