The 30th Annual Cotton Festival of 2017 is in the books. The festival kicked off Friday evening, June 2nd, with the competition cooks setting up, musical entertainment, exotic BBQ and best margarita judging and a cast of characters.

Michael Carubelli entertained the cooks and on-lookers Friday night.

"What blew my cover? Was it the hat? The feather? Seriously, what was it?"

" 'Seriously?' Are you kidding me, John?"
