The Big Fibbers Contest is coming up on April Fool’s Day. Last year’s winner, Terrell Shaw, has the details.

“It’s April 1st, 7:00 pm, Rome Civic Center right here in downtown Rome. We’re gonna have a great time. Come, tell a tale, or just listen to a tale.”

The contest is open to anyone who is 18 years or older. Each story – or fib – has an eight minute time limit. Admission is $5. A trophy will be awarded to the best fibber, decided by the judges.

The event was founded by the late Debby Brown who passed away last year.
