National Fence Painting Contest takes place in Hannibal

 "Say Tom, let me whitewash a little!"

That's a famous line from Hannibal native Mark Twain's famous book "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer", and on Sunday it came alive in America's Hometown.

It's the National Fence Painting Contest, about a dozen kids competed in this traditional Mark Twain event.

A Canadian participant said he would want to do fence painting contest again.
"Fun, really fun. Interesting, weird," Connor Robinson Evans said.

The winners received a large sized trophy, and of course, bragging rights for the next year.
