Last weekend I went home to Magnolia to attend the local Magnolia Blossom Festival and Steak Cookoff. There were 83 entries in the Parade of the Grills, more than ever before. Those entering were individuals, corporations, local businesses, and just plain folks who like to grill a good steak. Some came from as far away as Wyoming - just to enter the steak cookoff! The winner took home $4000.
Several got very creative! Following are just a few of them. There's something about local small town festivals that make me happy. I don't know if it's nostalgia, access to aligator-on-a -tick, kettle korn and funnell cakes, or just seeing a community come together, but it's nice - real nice.
