For the Little Miss category Madolyn Scott won ‘Poise’. Claudia Reichert won ‘Interview’. Rayna Dickson won ‘Fitness’.
For the Queen category Lyda Scarberry won all three categories, ‘Fitness’, ‘Poise’, and ‘Interview’.
Saturday morning various groups from Marshall County marched through Bourbon in the parade led by the Lemler family of Lemler Oil as Grand Marshal.
Saturday evening the field was aglow with the “Steve Needing Memorial Hot Air Balloon Inflate and Glow’ set against the midway and tractors.
Families, friends and neighbors played at the splash pad, ate elephants ears and other carnival treats, and watched the fireworks display sponsored by the Bourbon Fire Department following the glow.
This year’s festival wrapped up Sunday with an antique tractor line-up, the car show, the cutie contest and live musical entertainment.
