Grand Marshalls for the 2017 Freestone County Fair & Rodeo parade were Patricia and Tommy Robinson.
Natives of Fairfield, this couple grew up, like many of us, active in 4-H and FFA, and sports. Tommy served in the Navy, and spent over 35 years working with the kids of Freestone County. Patricia served more than 10 years on the County Fair board, as well. There is no place else they would rather be.
Best Dressed Cowboy is 5-year-old Hunter Isaacs, son of Shonda and Scott Isaacs of Fairfield.
Best Dressed Cowgirl is 2-year-old Briley Hall, daughter of Brittany and Tim Hall of Teague.
Most Creative float went to Incommons Bank with their rock-n-roll theme. Showering parade watchers with a super soaker water gun was Bank Manager Kevin Moller, dressed as Gene Simmons of KISS.
Most Entertaining entry is Freestone Medical Center with red, white & blue decorations and the mellow sounds of the 70’s band, America.
Most Beautiful goes to two sisters: Miss Teen contestant – Eden Daniel and Miss Freestone County contestant – Peyton Daniel. Their float sported a tropical theme.
And, the coveted “Spirit of Freestone” trophy this year goes to the RVOS and Rollo Insurance / Hochheim for their star-spangled golden entry (at top).
Congratulations to this year’s winners!
