Everything from classic cars to modern muscle and custom to cruising motorcycles will roll through Downtown Paris this weekend alongside a rock, paper, scissors competition and donut eating competitions during Lamar County Adopt-A-Cop’s Cops-N-Rodders on Saturday, Sept. 18, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at South Main Iron.
“The donut eating contest and rock, paper, scissors contest will be so much fun,” said Lamar County Adopt-A-Cop President Amanda Willows. “We will also have some amazing barbecue by the Do Right Boyz (Joey McCarthy and Ron Byers) at noon. BBQ, chips and drink for just $10, and it’s so worth it!”
Donut on a string eating contest will be a single-elimination tournament, and the winner from each bracket will compete against other winners until a champion is crowned. The two categories are adult and children 12 years and under. Entry is $5 and the winner takes home $30 plus a dozen donuts.
The most eaten donuts competition is just that – the most donuts eaten in two minutes. This is a one-round competition with limited entries. Entry is $25 and the winner takes home $75 and a dozen donuts.
The celebrity round will feature local police, firemen, EMS, city and county officials alongside local personalities in a one-round donut-on-a-string competition.

All proceeds from this weekend’s car show will benefit Lamar County Adopt-A-Cop.
“Our mission is to enhance officer safety by helping fulfill safety equipment and training needs for law enforcement and emergency services in Lamar County,” Willows said.
Widner Strong T-shirts will also be available for purchase at $15 apiece, and the proceeds from the shirts go toward the family of fallen Paris Police Officer Chris Widner. There will also be a silent auction, bounce house for the kids, music, BBQ and more.
To register a car, motorcycle or both, call Willows at 903-905-1229. Registration for a car or motorcycle is $25 apiece.
