Firing Up the Grill in Magnolia, Arkansas for Some Festival Fun [VIDEO]

One of my favorite festivals is coming up in this weekend May 18-19 in Magnolia, Ark., just a short drive from Texarkana. The 24th Annual Magnolia Blossom Festival and World Championship Steak Cook-Off.

The event includes a sidewalk art show, crafts, and motorcycle show, a fishing tournament, and the Blossom Festival Parade at 10 a.m. Saturday. Best of all, 5,000 steaks are cooked by teams vying to win the coveted Governor’s Cup and title as the World championship Steak Cooker.

I remember several years ago I took the wife and kids and the smell of the steaks cooking made for one hungry family by the end of the day. I remember sitting under some old Magnolia trees in the town square chowing down on some of the best steaks you ever sunk your teeth into.

Bubba Thompson, CMT’s star contestant from the hit show, “Sweet Home Alabama”, will be one of the judges for the Magnolia Blossom Festival World Championship Steak Cook-off!!

Country group’ The Lost Trailers’ will be the featured artist on Saturday, May 19.

I highly encourage you and your family to check out this festival as it is well worth the drive. For more details log on to their website

Here’s a video of The Lost Trailers from YouTube.

Check out this YouTube video of last year’s festival.
