Just Peachy.

Posted By on Wed, Jun 17, 2009 at 9:11 PM


Festival season is in full swing, and among this weekend's offerings:  the 67th Annual Johnson County Peach Festival.  Though the festivities include such Arkansas-centric activities as greased pig racing and frog jumping contests, peaches are the true center and glory of the weekend, with peach eating contests and pit spitting competitions.  For foodies, there are also contests for best peach cobbler, best peach jam and peach jelly.  Oh, and something tells me there will be peaches around.  Go figure.  I'll let you know what I find on my trip westward.  Want some more info?  Check out the event website.
