Enter Second Annual Salsa Contest

By Staff | Sep 22, 2009

It’s time to celebrate fall with Harvest Fest. The Emmetsburg Retail Association is making plans for a weekend of fun Friday and Saturday, Oct. 16 and 17.

The second annual Emmetsburg Salsa Contest is one of the highlights of Harvest Fest. There is only one rule: it must be home made. Salsa can be hot and spicy, sweet and savory, or salsa with a mystery twist.

It’s simple to take part. Bring a pint of homemade salsa to the VFW Hall on Saturday, Oct. 17, between 8 and 9 a.m. A team of three or four judges will taste the salsa samples and determine first, second and third place winners. Lee Beem from The Glass Sop is crafting stained glass Salsa Trophies for the winners.

To sign up for the Emmetsburg Salsa Contest, or for more information, contact Amy Martini at Pizza Ranch 852-2222 or leave a message at 852-2307.

Harvest Fest activities at the VFW are Saturday, Oct. 17, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Retail activities are Friday and Saturday, Oct. 16 and 17.
