Snackdown competition at Alameda County Fair
Submitted By Angel Moore
ItÕs a fact. From classic corndogs to deep-fried Twinkies, Òcrazy-goodÓ food is one of the top reasons people love going to the fair. This year, Alameda County Fair is taking Òfair fareÓ to new heights with the first annual SNACKDOWN, a live, competitive event featuring food vendors and their newest creations. Twelve finalists will compete for the titles of ÒBest Taste,Ó ÒMost CreativeÓ and ÒBest ThemeÓ (ÒTaste the Red, White & BlueÓ). From those winners, an overall ÒGrand ChampionÓ will be named.
A panel of esteemed Bay Area ÒfoodieÓ judges will sample and score each entry to determine the winners. ÒSNACKDOWN FinalistÓ signs will be posted to food stands to help fans identify the contestant dishes they wish to try.
