It was announced that Mara Miller Spahn of Watsonville won the “It’s All in the Sauce” contest at the 8th Annual Testicle Festival held in Watsonville on Saturday, August 27th. The contest invites attendees to prepare and bring their favorite dipping sauces for everyone to try out with the Rocky Mountain Oysters served as appetizers. Mara’s sauce was the favorite of the sauces entered in the competition. Janet Estrada of Watsonville won the coveted “Best Sauce Name” section of the contest with her “Sweet Balls of Mine” sauce.
There was also a competitive horseshoe contest at the Testicle Festival. The winning team was comprised of Fred Chamberlain and teammate Ricardo Am Rhein.
All contest winners were presented with plaques memorializing their triumphant performances.
The Young Farmers and Ranchers Committee of the Santa Cruz County Farm Bureau 8th Annual Testicle Festival was held at Estrada Deer Camp in Watsonville. The Rocky Mountain Oysters were served as hors d’ oeuvres and the sauces were enjoyed and judged by the record-crowd attending. A full chicken barbeque was served for dinner, with s’mores, made around the campfire, for dessert. The event also included a raffle, live and silent auction.
