Taste of the South set Saturday

If you like great food you better bring a huge appetite to Heritage Park Saturday night.
The Leadership Atmore Class of 2004 will host its second annual Taste of the South food festival from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. Class president Sharon Smith said final preparations for the tasty event are going well.
The event will feature vendors seeking the Best Taste of the South award presented to the vendor with the best food at the event. Smith went on to say that her fellow classmates have been working hard to help get this year's Taste of the South off to a good start.
McElhaney's was awarded the inaugural Best Taste of the South award last year. This year the event will also feature the Best Taste of Dessert and Best Decorated Booth. Smith also said there would be door prizes awarded throughout the event.
There will also be entertainment on hand to keep the crowd entertained.
With all the rain Atmore and the surrounding areas has received the past couple of weeks, Smith is hoping this year's event will stay dry.
Tickets for the event are $10. Each ticket includes five taste-testing tickets, which are to be used for sampling at five vendor booths. Smith said support has been great this year.
The Taste of the South was the Leadership Atmore Class of 2004's project last year. Smith said the graduates decided to have a project that continued throughout the years.
