Best of the Festival: Pronto pups


EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – Joe Bird wrapped up the first day of the Best of the Festival, where Booth #79 St. Paul’s Lutheran Youth won for Best of Chicken and Dumplings.

This week, two booths are competing to see who has the best pronto pups.

Evansville Lutheran School’s Booth #46 makes pronto pups every year.

It helps fund field trips and teacher appreciation week.

Howell’s General Baptist’s Booth #124 funds missions, children’s church, and Thanksgiving baskets with their Fall Festival money.

Booth #124 claims to have the original pronto pup at the festival, opening their booth in the early 1950s.
