Fairgoers Throw Their Hats In The Ring

Posted: Updated:

HARRINGTON, Del. - We've told you about food contests to animal showing at the Delaware State Fair, but on Wednesday morning, it was all about the hats.

Both adults, and kids ages 8 through 14 used their own creativity and design to decorate these hats. The only requirement, they had to use silk flowers. Judges tell 47 ABC, the hats are judged on aesthetic value, such as how nicely it is out together, along with the wearability of the hat. It seems simple, but the preparation can apparently be lengthy.

Teresa Murphy, says "Some of them particularly have the sequins placed all around and are very detail oriented on that, I would say anywhere from 30 minutes to a couple of hours."

Judges say other than the silk flowers, participants were able to use any decorations they wanted. Some of the items ranged from sequins and beads, to ribbons.
