Poultry Days Cake and Egg Contest Winners Announced

While the social portions of the Poultry Days Festival were canceled and chicken rescheduled to August 14-16 several events adapted.  In this part of the world we believe keeping traditions alive is important.  Two Versailles traditions are the annual Egg Exhibit and Cake Contest.  Instead of delaying these events for a year the Versailles Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center which is the organizer of the contests, awarded honorary prizes for 2020.

The Cake Contest has been conducted for as long as anyone can remember and involves baking an angel food cake with strict adherence to a recipe handed down year over year.  With a grand prize of $11 this event is about the prestige of that blue ribbon and not the riches.  For 2020 first prize was awarded to the newest business in Versailles, The Pie Hole Bakehouse.  Representatives of the Rehab Center and Poultry Days readily consumed the winning cake and deemed it superb.  Accepting the first prize ribbon for the Pie Hole was owner and baker, Cathy Yant.

We want to congratulate The Pie Hole Bakehouse on their award and thank them for their support.  The festival continues to maintain our local traditions with both the Miss Chick and Little Miss Pageants being held in 2020.  If you haven’t yet, please consider placing an order for bulk chicken at versaillespoultrydays.com or purchasing individual dinner tickets at Johns IGA, Second National Versailles or the Versailles S&L.  All orders for bulk chicken must be placed by August 7th.  Poultry Days will be following all local and state guidance while assembling and distributing chicken dinners as it relates to the health and safety of our guests.  Reach us at vpdchickenline@gmail.com with questions or visit versaillespoultrydays.com for details.   Supporting summer fun for 69 years.
