Salsa Fest brings the heat in annual get together
Live music, dancing, and salsa poured out of Burlington Northern Park over the weekend.
WADENA — A warm, late summer afternoon greeted guests to the annual Salsa Fest in Burlington Northern Park on Saturday, Sept. 17.
The event is meant to bring together people in unity around the simple yet sensational salsa. Add in live music, dancing, food, drink and a sprawling list of vendors and you've got an event that did just that.
Those attending took part in demonstrations put together by the Sustainable Farming Association and were all asked to take part in the salsa and hot sauce competition.
Winners in this year's event included Naima Dhore who took grand champion in the hot sauce and specialty categories.
Andy and Peg Johnson, of Goffs Bay Sauce and Salsa, in McGregor, won the salsa competition with their picante salsa. Over 300 votes were cast in the competition.
