The tacolalah committee is almost ready for the Christmas night parade in beautiful uptown Arkansas City at 6 pm. See you there.
It looks like Tacolalah was a huge success. I want to say that us at SMOKE HAPPY BBQ and I'm sure I speak for some of the other food vendors that we deeply regret and opoligize for running out of food early. I can honestly say we weren't expecting such an overwhelming crowd. The event was awesome!!!
Wonderland Pearls is SO excited to be a vendor during Tacolalah! We have oysters with pearls inside, and pearl jewelry! You might get 1, 2, 3, or even 4 pearls when we open your oyster! You’ll find us in the tent with the blue and white striped top!! Oh! And be sure to check out our website, www.wonderlandpearls.com
How do we take part in salsa tasting?!!!!!
How much will the tasting kits be?
