Looking for something fun for the entire family on Saturday? If so, head over to Shawsville for the annual Eastmont Tomato Festival, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This is a great homespun event featuring live music, vendors, tomato-laden foods such as pizza and tomato sandwiches, and local fair-style contests.
Folks will compete for such titles as grower of the funniest-looking tomato, Heirloom Tomato Queen, Cherry Tomato Baby and Tomato Prince and Princess. There’s also a tomato-eating contest, so I hope someone shows up with a lot of antacids.
This is a picture of the 2010 Cherry Tomato Baby. I’ve shared this picture on the blog in the past, but it’s just so darn cute that I can’t resist using it again.
For all the details about the festival, including the full calendar, head over to their Word Press page here.
