Now, listen up; I didn’t hear anything about this until a few minutes ago, and then I hurried to spread the word. If you can’t make it to Central Kansas, maybe you’ll get lucky some where else, Umm?

EMPORIA, Kansas (KSNT) – The third annual Twinkies Festival kicks off Saturday morning in Emporia.

Hostess is partnering with the city to bring forth the event. It will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Flinthills Mall.

You are invited to help celebrate the sugary confections that are made at the Hostess Brands, LLC flagship production facility.

New to this year’s event is a 5K run that starts at 7:30 in the morning before the general activities.

Other events include the Twinkie eating challenge, costume contest, and the recipe contest.

There will also be a surplus of Twinkies served at the event along with other dishes

Please! Please, don’t notify Neil Cavuto of Fox Business News. I mean, if rumors he says are true that last sentence might not be valid.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
