This afternoon, Arkansas' largest food and music festival opens along both banks of the Arkansas River. But the cooking has already started. I wandered about this morning and caught the whiff of savory cooking at the Arkansas Philipine Association booth behind LaHarpe's Landing... where Chicken BBQ Kebabs are already on the grill.
The folks at Fat Sam's are stirring up crawfish ettoufee, and I passed by folks working on getting kettle corn going. Post Familie Vineyards is busy getting the Specialty Beverage Garden up and going by the foot of the Junction Bridge, and the Yarnell's folks are making sure there's plenty of ice cream on hand. Next update: a new flavor, and what could be both an old fashioned flavor and this year's cool winner among sweet drinks. More in a bit from Riverfest. More narration of my walk-through at Tie Dye Travels.
