"Are you ready for the BugFest 2019 Critter Cook Off?
The Cook-off serves as the official start to BugFest and pits local chefs against each other “Iron-Chef” style to vie for the chance at being named “BugFest Critter Cook-off Champ!”
Each chef will create a dish under a time limit using a bug from this year's featured creature "Beetles." The dish that stimulates the judges' taste buds the most will be crowned BugFest Critter Cook-off Champion.
Friday’s preview will last about an hour and is free to attend. Parking is available in the visitor parking lot at the corner of Jones and Wilmington streets. BugFest is on Saturday, September 21 from 9am to 7pm."
