Clinton attorney Frank Bradshaw hams it up a bit for the camera as he prepares to judge the annual Bake-Off, one of many activities that could be found during Saturday’s Downtown Street Fair and Barbecue Cook-off. Thousands turned out for the festivities, and John C. Johnson was declared overall winner of the bake-off for his pineapple cream nutcake. Other judges included Mason Tarr, Justin Lockamy and Neal and Jonelle Strickland. See a photo essay of the downtown events on Page A11 today.
