FREDERICKTOWN — “Hometown Strong” describes all that was the 37th Annual Little Miss Tomato show at the 2013 Fredericktown Tomato Show Wednesday evening as seventeen 6-year-old Fredericktown residents graced the stage donning their scarlet gowns and waved gracefully at a large crowd of parents and community members.
As the girls made their way up to the stage they were each interviewed by Julie Chester, director of the event. Chester, who has been an emcee for the event for many years had the task of asking each young lady something about their lives.
Responses ranged from describing their school day to trying to identify their favorite type of food to bake with their parents. However, the most common topics of conversation were family and cats. Just about every contestant of the 2013 Little Miss Tomato Show said that they indeed loved their cat, and had named them accordingly.
