Wyitt Belgarde of Perry wins Iowa State Fair egg roll Saturday

Wyitt Belgarde, 9, of Perry, center, was presented a trophy Saturday by two queens as the Iowa State Fair egg rolling champion.

Wyitt Belgarde, 9, of Perry won the Junior Egg Roll Saturday at the Iowa State Fair.

The Perry Elementary School student is the son of Dustin and Savannah Belgarde of Perry.

To win at the fair, Belgarde had to roll an egg more than 100 feet without breaking it. The race started out with more than 50 entrants, according to witnesses, and seven made it all the way down.

A roll off, which added about six more feet to the course, reduced the rollers to three, and Belgarde won in the second roll off.

This was Belgarde’s second year as an Iowa State Fair egg roller. The contest was held across from the poultry and rabbit barn on the hill beside Pioneer Hall.
