Paula Deen did what amounted to a stand-up routine and the sold-out crowd roared as her dog, Lulu performed tricks… she introduced Michael and asked the crowd where she could find a bull penis for a chew toy for Lulu.  She figured that a Texas crowd had ready access to them.
There are nearly 200 exhibitors and
vendors to stroll through.

The $24.00 general admission is well worth the price for foodies. There is a full day left on Sunday!  For information, schedules and prices, go to:
