Is it the competitive yodeling? Off-the-hook interpretations of the Chicken Dance? Guys in leather pants? The annual royalty competition that kicks off Lovettsville’s Oktoberfest Friday evening is always a crowd pleaser. Now in its eighth year, the contest has only gotten wackier and more hilarious.
This year, reigning champions Melissa and Scott Barton take on two pairs of newcomers in what promises to be a festive, friendly and funny competition with plenty of audience engagement.
“Once you’ve yodeled in public once, what’s another time?” said Melissa Barton on her third run for the local crown.
The royalty competition kicks off Lovettsville’s nationally recognized Oktoberfest at a family-oriented dinner Friday, Sept. 27. The king and queen then preside over a full day of music, food and fun on Saturday.
