Barbeque fans, mark your calendar for a colossal feast this fall – a Barbeque Cookoff is being added to this year’s Harvest Festival!

The County Park and Recreation Commission will celebrate the transition from summer to fall on Saturday, November 3 at Mullet Hall Equestrian Center. This year's entertainment will include live bluegrass music from five local bluegrass bands, Southern food, hay rides, a stick pony corral, pumpkin decorating, penny diving, lasso demonstrations, crafts and more.

New this year is the addition of a barbeque cookoff featuring local restaurants. The list of participating restaurants has yet to be released - so stay tuned. All guests are invited to sample the que for $1 for a 3-ounce sample, and then vote on a favorite.

Admission is only $5 per person, but bring cash to buy food and crafts once inside.
