Hay Bale Decorating Contest

Hopkins County residents who wish to enter the Hay Bale Decorating Contest for fun and prizes can enter now. Entries are needed by October first, however, hay bale sculptures don’t have to be completely ready for judging until Monday October 14, 2019. This is the second year for the creative contest. Last year there were 19 entries, and more are expected this year as families, church groups, clubs and businesses join in. Now during the harvest season, it’s also a good way to recognize the importance of hay on the economy of Hopkins County. There is no registration fee. Feel free to sculpt your entry out of square or round bales, or a combination of both. Your entry can be from one bale to as many as you would like to use. Your sculpture can also use other materials with the bales to enhance your theme, and it can display then name of your sponsoring group or club. Wherever entries are located, in town or in the county, they will be viewed and judged on October 18 with winners announced on October 26. More details and entry information can be found by phoning contest organizers Shirley Patchen at 903-885-5914 or Sue Potts at 903-485-3241 or by email at [email protected]
