Iola Hedgehog Fest '02

The Iola Hedgehog Fest took place on March 16 and 17, 2002, in Iola, KS. The festivities began on Saturday, March 16, with a judges training class attended by five trainees and several auditors, followed by a potluck at the Burleson house. 

The main events took place on Sunday, March 17th at Iola's North Community Building. Check-in started at 9:30 am, followed by a lecture on Pampering Your Hedgehog, given by Nicole Gendler. The first show started at about 10:30 am and was judged by Sherry Arata. This was followed by the fun classes, judged by Sarah Shore. Lunch break ran from 1 to 2, then festivities resumed with registration and a lecture on Starting Your Own Hedgehog Related Business, co-hosted by Sherry Arata and Becca Loane. After the show, vendors opened their hotel rooms for the Hedgie Mall and much shopping ensued! Those who hadn't left town yet met back at the Burleson household for potluck leftovers and KFC. A fantastic time was had by all! Many thanks to our sponsors and our judges for making this event successful! Follow the links below for pictures and show results:
