It's almost time for the Benton-Franklin Fair and Rodeo! There will be so many great events to check out, things to see and do, and FOOD TO EAT! Yes, we all love an elephant ear, and various items on sticks, but man, we love us some barbecue in the Tri-Cities!

If you think you're one heck of a BBQ master, you can join the BBQ Cook-off! Individuals and teams will be competing for bragging rights on Saturday, August 7 at the fair. Enter your team ASAP, or hey, if you don't want to enter, but you want to try the delicious foods just make sure you're there to sample the goodness and vote in the People's Choice Competition! See you at the fair!
