Chomp & Stomp

15 Nov

Last weekend, a friend and I went to the 8th annual Cabbagetown Chomp & Stomp in Atlanta. Sadly, we missed the 5K run AND the chili cook-off  samplings, but there were still lots of music, beer and sunshine. For the future, I’ll be sure to arrive earlier and bring my own plastic spoon for the tastings.

From the scraps and remains, the 5K race begins at 8 a.m. followed by awards and the festival kicking off at 11 a.m. At noon, the public is able to sample individuals’ and restaurants’ simmering chili. In between the bluegrass performances, there are games such as “bobbing for brussel sprouts” in honor of the name Cabbagetown. LOL!

Although the main attraction is the chili and beer, there were suprisingly a lot of families with young children.  There was even a mini “circus” for entertainment with an elephant.  In perusing through the arts & crafts, there were lots of interesting artwork, great gift ideas, recycled materials turned into purses and household items, and an earring holder made of vintage scarves I was tempted to purchase.
