As the salsa competition enters its fourth year, come try and beat out the reigning champions. The block party will take place on South Main Street on Sunday, May 28, from 5 to 8 pm, with salsa music from Marka Music, dancing, activities for kids, and craft and food vendors.
Spicy, tangy, traditional, creative: salsa comes in many varieties and all are welcome. A team may consist of one or two members. The competition is judged by the public, who, for $5, will get a bowl of chips and judging tickets. Prizes are first place, $250; second place, $100; most creative, $50; best traditional, $50; and best display, $50. Entrants must provide at least two gallons of salsa for sampling. Proceeds go to Twin Valley Jr. Iron Chef and Wilmington Works.
Wilmington Works is also seeking vendors for the block party, including food vendors and crafters. To register as a vendor or salsa contestant and for complete details and rules visit www.wilmingtonworksvt.com.
