If you attend events primarily for the food and drinks, this one is no exception. According to the event, this year’s agriculture booths will be better than ever, with a lot more organic foods to choose from. And, for those with a sweet tooth, bring some extra cash to buy all kinds of baked goodies. Did I mention there’s also a pie eating contest?
