Stilwell Strawberry Festival winners

STILWELL — From growers, to bakers to parade entries, there are many winners involved in the Stilwell Strawberry Festival.

The growers who provide the tasty homegrown red fruit are very competitive each year, in hopes of having the top berry. One amazing fact about the older growers like Harold Brannon is how they can tell one variety from another by sight and taste.

Winners of the 2014 best berry were first place, Burl Doyle with the San Andreas variety; second place, Tyler Woods with Albion variety; third place, Bobby and Jane Doyle with Camino Real variety; fourth place, Harold Brannon with Wendy variety and fifth place, Josh Lo, with Camino Real variety.

After the berry grower winners were announced, the flats of berries were auctioned off. Cherokee Nation Chief Bill John Baker bought the winning flat for $3,500.

A tasty competition is the Bake-off. Recipes are listed in the Strawberry Festival booklet the following year.

Adult winners were: first place,Jeral Poor; second place, Megan Lucus and third place, Betty Bolin.

Youth winners were: first place, Kyson Hardbarger, second place, Cameron Hasson and third place Joseph and Savannah Cunningham.

Every year at 10 a.m. the bands march, horses trot, classic cars cruise and the queen and her court wave and smile during the parade.

Winners in the floats and entries for the Civic Division were: first place, Talking Leaves Job Corps, second place Cherokee Nation Chief and third place Lincoln Riding Club Drill Team.

In the Religious Division, the only entry was the Stilwell INdian United Methodist Church.

For the Open Division, Arvest Bank took first place, Bank of Commerce second place and Memorial Hospital third place.
