CONTEST HASHTAG! #atxtwirlfest2021
For this event we would love to see our Texas Twirlers to utilize the hashtag #atxtwirlfest2021 when posting photos of the competition weekend on social media. Use the hashtag and your photo could end up on this blog or the contest site! Don't forget to tag @twirlingiscatchingtx on Facebook or Instagram and we may share your pic on one of our pages.

*NEW FOR 2021* The Candy Cane Cup Twirl Off!
New this year, the ATX Holiday Twirl Fest will be offering the Candy Cane Cup Twirl Off. The top winners in each division will twirl again to determine the Candy Cane Cup Winner! A Candy Cane Cup “trophy” and sash will be awarded to one winner from each division (Novice, Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced). We are so excited for this event, and can’t wait until everyone sees the “trophy”! 

Highlighted Event - Created to honor contest co-director, Ashley Wood's, mother, who fought and defeated Breast Cancer in 2015, and to celebrate all the women in our twirling community that have overcome so much, there is a special Best Costume event, unlike any Best Costume event you have seen before. The "Honorary Best Costume" competition puts all ages against each other on the floor at the same time to judge who has the "best costume". The entry fee for this event ($10) is a direct donation to Twirling to Fight Cancer. TTFC Founder, John 'Baton' Mitchell, will once again be judging at the contest, and will be there to accept the donation check. Last year this event raised $400.00 for TTFC... What will it be this year?

*Special for 2021* Both the Twirling to Fight Cancer High School & College Ambassadors will be in attendance! Amber & Alexis will be selling their T2FC Fundraising items, Amber’s Spirit Batons & Clips For A Cure, as well as Twirling to Fight Cancer merchandise, and they will available for photo ops. Make sure to come and say hi to these awesome National Ambassadors. 

Congrats to Kaylynn Lambert, the recipient of the 2020 13+ Best Costume Award
