Has anyone been to this annual festival in Novato? It's on this Sunday at 11:00 and since I plan to be up there anyway I'm going to drop by and check it out. I guess it's a latino heritage festival featuring salsa music as well as the "pico de gallo" variety. The tiny bit of press I found about it mentioned a jalapeno eating contest and a tamale eating contest. And while I'm generally opposed to eating contests, the idea of watching a bunch of macho men scarf jalapenos could be funny...for a few minutes. Odds are pretty good that there will be tamales for the rest of us too! I plan to show up hungry and will be sure to report back.
