|Title||Cake-eating contest at Cornucopia Festival, Kent, July 13, 1956 |
|Caption||Kent, Washington's second annual Community Festival opened on Friday, July 13, 1956, and ran for three days. During the first day, area youngsters entered cake-eating contests and boys competed to catch a greased pig or climb a slippery pole. The festival also featured a parade, the crowning of a queen, livestock judging and a farm show.|
In this photo of the girls' cake-eating contest, taken at the 1956 Kent Community Festival, one girl licks cake off of the face of another girl as other children look on in delight. The photographer identified three of the girls as Mary Lou Linnell, Susan Alf and Sally Johnson but did not specify which was which.
