Saturday, August 6th 2011- Day one of Gatorfest
The contest started at 11 am with the competitors eagerly awaiting their chance to wrestle and wrangle an alligator. Today they were each to catch 3 gators from different areas of the farm, with a goal of catching the most inches of gator. With one new contestant and several veterans trying to win the prize, there were many close calls throughout the day- not only for the competitors but for our cameramen too! Not one went through the day without stepping on a gator while wading through the swamps to get that perfect shot.
Gatorfest is always full of new thrills and exciting challenges! Be sure to bring the family for next year’s. A huge thanks to the Young family for allowing us to film and always taking good care of the competitors, the fans, and us cameramen!
