MEATY:  The beef goes into the sauce

Have you already got your tickets for an Italian Spaghetti Dinner? If you do, you already know about the 112th Annual Tontitown Grape Festival coming up, well, now. One of the oldest festivals in the state, the festival features a carnival, vendors, live music, activities for the kids, a book sale and of course a feast featuring spaghetti and fried chicken.

The pasta has already been prepared, rolled and dried for weeks now. Photographer Grav Weldon went up there yesterday morning to capture the sauce making process in action. Thousands of the dinners will be served at $10 a pop ($5 for kids) over the three days of dining. First feast is tomorrow 4:30-8:30 p.m.; it'll be repeated Friday and Saturday. I know from my own experience that there will be a line out the door and around the festival to get in. I also know it will be very, very hot, so be careful. Want to know more about the festival? Check out my experience from last year at Tie Dye Travels.
