It was a perfect Saturday afternoon for a banana split eating contest—sunny and hot! About 20 people were glad to be part of the free contest, which was held last Saturday, July 16, at the Sparta Tasty Treat, after the Sparta Town and Country Days parade.
The youngest entrant was Rylie Wilcome, 3, of Sparta. She didn’t seem to be too worried about winning—she was just glad to have the ice cream!
There were three categories of winners: adults, 11-15 years old, and 10 and under. Winners were Donny Soules, 10, of Kent City; Jayden Phillips, 11, of Sparta; and for the second year in a row, Roger Wiggins, of Sparta, won the adult category. Everyone received a coupon for participating, and the winners received a trophy.
