~Tis the season for tamales!
During the holidays for most of us here in the Valley there is nothing more traditional than those deliciously wrapped treats and now there TMs a festival for it.
Norma Linda Zepeda stopped by Thursday to talk about the event.
She said the Tamale Fest 2013 will be held at the new Deleon Soccer Complex in McAllen located at Buddy Owens Blvd and 34th Street on Saturday, December 14th.
It will begin with a children's fun run at 2p and the festival itself will begin 3pm- 9pm. There will be live entertainment, children's activities, food and beverage booths, a tamale eating contest, tamale making classes, arts & crafts and a beer and wine garden.
Tamale Fest will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of McAllen and are still looking for sponsors and volunteers.
