Five years ago, Rooster Rush became a community contest. Businesses decorated to welcome the out-of-state hunters (and their spending habits), and thanks to our CVB director, Elmer Fudge was born. Dressed from head to foot in orange (relying on his AFO [affinity for orange] wardrobe), Elmer came to life to judge the competitors and distribute the anticipated prize...fudge. It was an amazing run, with stunning participation and delightful competitors. This year, Elmer would miss the week of competition, so realizing change is beneficial, decided to hang up his named orange hat. Today, at his last event, he will honor those that make Watertown the amazing place it is. In every way possible, it's been sweet!
