Children's Literature
From the Maine Lobster Festival in Rockland, Maine to the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, sample American food and ethnic festivals coast-to-coast. Be ready to travel to all fifty states through these pages, and get a history lesson through the regional traditions and customs celebrating local harvest and pride. The most interesting sounding festival might be the Prairie Dog Chili Cook Off and World Championship Pickled Quail Egg Eating Contest in Texas. This is a two-day event kicked off with a parade and jalapeno pepper-cutting ceremony. Anvil tossing and tobacco spitting contests are included but take a back seat to the chili and eggs. Thank goodness recipes are given with each festival, some offbeat, created for festival cooking contests, others family favorites that are generously shared. A directory at the back of the book lists festivals by the month, as well as state-by-state, with complete contact information. 2002, Laurel Glen Publishing,
