Have you been known to tell a tall tale or two? Register for the 244th annual Big Fibbers contest slated for 2 pm on Saturday, March 28th at the Rome City Auditorium. It is part of the Big Fibbers Festival sponsored by the Ridge and Valley Storytelling Guild.
Terrell Shaw, President of the Guild, asserts that registration is now available online at www.bigfibbers.com. New competitors must upload a short audition video.
There is a $20 registration fee. Competitors will vie for the title of “Biggest Fibber”, as well as cash prizes of $200, $150 and $50.
The ’20 Big Fibbers Festival will feature public events from Thursday, March 26th through Saturday, March 28th. Nationally and internationally recognized tellers Antonio Rocha (pronounced Ha-sha), a native of Brazil that now lives in Maine, and Donna Washington of Virginia will be the headliners. The pair will perform at local schools during the week leading up to the festival.
Shaw encourages the public to mark their calendars and make plans to attend the 6th annual Big Fibbers Festival.
