Take Advantage of Fall Festivals

Now that we're in the heart of the Ozarks, where my mother loved to come, especially in the fall because of all of the festivals, I can't wait to get to some of them.
It's not just because I like the funnel cakes and kettle corn either.
This weekend, we're attending the Arkansas Hillbilly Chili Cook-off. Apparently, each state has a chili cook-off and this is the one for Arkansas that will determine who goes onto the national chili cook-off.
A friend of mine from New York laughed when I told her. "And to think I already made plans this weekend."
I even told my husband, "It sounds a little scary when you think about it," referring to the term 'hillbilly' conjures up images of more than beef going into those pots.
But as I said, I'm not going just for the food. I'll be armed with my notepad and camera because I guarantee you, I'll walk away from the cook-off with more than a stomach ache from too much fair food, I'll have at least one good story idea.
Where are you going this weekend?
Remember, every outing is a possible story.
