The Hunt for Sunzilla is cosponsored by Waterbury True Value Hardware, Evergreen Gardens, Sunflower Natural Foods, The Waterbury Farmers Market and the Waterbury Rotary Club. We will be awarding prizes for the tallest sunflower, largest diameter and heaviest sunflower heads. By popular demand we will again have our Sunflower Seed Spitting Contest for both distance and accuracy for kids 12 and younger.(Adults have tried to pass for 12 and younger in the past). We will also continue awarding a prize for the longest and heaviest Zucchinis, known as The Hunt for the Other Green Monster. We recommend that people keep their cars locked following this contest or you could wind up with a year's supply of the fixings for Zucchini Bread in the form of one Zucchini. All contestants should try to bring their entries to the Rusty Parker Park by 4:30 pm. During the event we will again be doing Ice Cream Sundaes for Supper which are do it yourself sundaes for a donation that will be used to help support the construction of a medical clinic in Kenya.
