Nelson Star

Abe Fominoff named Mr. Nelson 2013

The third annual Mr. Nelson contest was held at Finley's Pub on Saturday. Eight men competed for the title, showing off their formal wear and talents in hope of winning the preference of the night's five judges. Abe Fominoff, of AM Ford, was named Mr. Nelson. His talent was dancing to a mash-up of popular music, from "Walk Like an Egyptian" to "Gangnam Style." Other contestants showcased their singing, swing dancing, strength, juggling or stripping skills, and each of them men walked away with a prize. The event raised money for KidSport and Nelson Food Cupboard.
