Turnip greens reign supreme

Tradition returns to Easton this weekend for the 2012 Turnip Green Festival.

The party starts Friday night with a street dance after sunset in the city’s downtown streets.

On Saturday, the festival offers several annual attractions, such as a car and bike show, softball, basketball and domino tournaments, live entertainment including a Karaoke talent show and the turnip green cookoff. Tastes of all entries in the cookoff will be available to festival-goers, according to the event’s website.

Kid’s rides, ponies and games are also planned, along with vendor booths.

Festivities end Sunday with a horseshoe tournament and the softball and basketball finals.

For more information or to reserve a vending booth, call (903) 738-1350 weekdays through Friday, 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., or by visiting www.turnipgreenfestival.com.
