The participating Cook-Off Teams will be handing out samples of the food they prepare at the cook off to the general public. We will be handing out tickets where the public can pick their favorite team by placing their People’s Choice Ticket in the cooking teams spot. The team with the most tickets is the People’s Choice Winner. We are excited to continue with the kids Q as part of the cook off. We have slots for 20 kids in two age groups (6 – 11) and (12 – 16).
