The baby and fiddlers contests are always some of the highlights of the Johnson County Old Settlers Reunion held at the fairgrounds.
Tuesday night, Aug. 14, in the baby contest, winners in the youngest group were boy, Trayson James, son of Steve Preach and Jennifer James of Joshua; there were two girl winners, Kelsey Taylor, daughter of Michael and Kimberly Taylor of Burleson, and Lylee McCoy, daughter of Tyler and Lona McCoy, also of Burleson.
In the older group, the boy winner was Carson Brown, son of Dasan Brown and Toni Shafer of Alvarado, and the winning girl was Tatum McCullough, daughter of Chris and Amy McCullough of Mansfield.
Friday night, fiddlers came from as far away as Bowie and as near as Alvarado. Some fiddlers came alone, and others made it a family affair, including the Wallace family from Burleson and the Mears brothers of Alvarado.

In the 16- to 25-year-old category, winners were Brooke Wallace of Burleson, first place; Jordan Franklin of Burleson, second place, and Kyle Russell of Alvarado, third place.
There was only one entry in the 26-45 age group, Marty Elmore of Bowie.
Winners in the 46-65 age group were Randy Elmore of Cleburne, first place; Larry Hill of North Richland Hills, second place, and Jim Varnoon of Fort Worth, third place.
