Who is ready for a PaaaarTAY! Utah’s very own, Thanksgiving Point, is having their annual Jiggle Fest on Saturday July 19th. To quote their website, “It’s a food festival of jiggly proportions”. They are having four different recipe contests, a family movie at dusk, Jello wars, running through sprinklers and all of the other awesomeness you get with a day at Thanksgiving Point.
Now, you all know that food is near and dear to me so let’s start there. Utah’s Own is proud to be involved with these recipe contests that focus on some Utah food favorites and feature some of our wonderful member businesses. Funeral Potatoes, Jello, Fry Sauce, and Dutch Oven Cooking. I want to know how to become a judge for these. If you want to enter a recipe you need to be registered with them by July 18th. That’s NEXT Friday.
The next bit is, I think, a stroke of genius. Thanksgiving Point is having hourly Jello Wars starting at 10:30 am and running until 3:30 pm. They are also doing hourly playtime in the sprinklers starting at 11:00 am and running until 4:00 pm. Yes, play, run, get covered in Jello and then run through the sprinklers and get washed off. I say again, genius. Just don’t forget your sunscreen.
After everything is cleaned up and all the food is put away they will be showing “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” at dusk. Bring your blankets and a picnic and spend some time relaxing with the family under the stars. It will be good recovery time from a day filled with running, laughing and eating.
