Fun was had by all who attended Lucky CIC’s Luckyfest held Saturday on the grounds surrounding the community building.
“It is a job putting on that big of an event. We had a lot of CIC members helping to make it successful,” said Lucky CIC president Lynn Blair.
Winners were named in a total of ten pageants held for infants through girls 19 years of age. Lauren Ashley Brown had luck and beauty going her way Saturday to name her Miss Lucky 2013.
The inaugural Truck Tug-O-War competition was a big hit with spectators as well as competitors with street-legal trucks being pitted against each other to determine which truck would be deemed king of the tug-o-war.
Liberty resident Joe Jones’ truck was named best in the gasoline class and it went against Jeff Womack’s diesel truck. Womack’s truck came out as best diesel truck in the diesel competition after it left the other competitors spinning up dust.
 Jones and Lucky resident Womack, went head to head ... or tail to tail ... in the final competition of the day in which Jones took home the trophy as the Best All Around Truck Tug-O-War champion.
Blair said he thought the Truck Tug-O-War was a success. “People seemed to really enjoy the competition. Many were curious to see how it would go. I am pretty sure we will do that again next year,” said Blair.
Betty Nunley was named volunteer of the year by the organization for the time she puts into Lucky CIC activities throughout the year including the fair food booth at the Warren County A&L Fair.
The concession stand was open Saturday with attendees loving the freshly grilled hamburgers, as well as cheese fries, ice cream and homemade peach cobbler available for purchase. Jerry N. Cantrell took time out from his duties of grilling burgers to entertain the crowd with his guitar playing.
Children were able to enjoy the community playground which was complete with swings, monkey bars, slide and tunnel. Games for children were also set up to entertain the youngsters.
People wanting to shop visited the many booths which were set up offering items such as jewelry, crocheted scarves and wreaths.
