Firefighters reap rewards from bountiful cook-off

The three judge panel eventually selected the Eastpoint Volunteer Fire Department’s dish for the top prize, the second year in a row, and Ilardi’s half-shell delights for second, repeating top finishes they each earned in previous years.

Getter said she believes it may be time to bring in some fresh palates to the task. “You live and learn,” she said. “Maybe it should be like that, but it doesn’t make sense to have the same judges.”

Many of the attendees brought their dogs to the event, and Getter said boosted turnout as well. “Everybody had their dog on the leash, which is nice too,” she said. “My goal always was to have a nice, old town, kind of festival oriented for families.”
