"How About a RC Cola and Moon Pie...."

This Time of the Year...Summer Has Arrived, Kids Are Out of School, Pools Are Open, Picnics Are Planned and I Am Ready For A Festival to Start Off the Season. When the Temperature Rises and Historic Bell Buckle is All a Buzz, You Know Its Time to Celebrate the South's Two Most Beloved Icons...RC Colas and Moon Pies!
The "16th Annual RC Moon Pie Festival"
Will Be This Saturday, June 19th 2010
from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Bell Buckle, Tennessee.
The Day Will Begin with 1000 Runners Taking Part in the 15th Annual RC and Moon Pie 10 Mile Run. The Festivities Continues with 50 Art and Craft Booths, Live Music and Cloggers. Food Vendors Will Offer Such Fares as Turkey Legs, Fresh Squeezed Lemonade, and "Deep Fried Moon Pies. The Fun Filled Day Will Continue with the RC Moon Pie Parade which Will Wind Through the Historic Town with "Mr.RC and Miss Moon Pie" Leading the Way. Following Closely Behind Will Be the "RC King and Moon Pie Queen, RC Prince, and Moon Pie Princess." This Year's Recipient of Honor is a Middle Tennessee Family Who Lost Everything in the May 1st Flood! The RC and Moon Pie Festival Will Be Requesting a $1.00 Admission/Donation Per Person. "Every Single Dollar Collected Will Be Given to This Family to Help Rebuild Their Lives!" They Will Be Given The "Royal Treatment" for The Weekend with Free Lodging and Dining During Their Stay...
For the King and Queen's Arrival, Bell Buckle Will be "Beefing Up" Our Security. The Black Stretch Limousine with Tinted Windows will be Surrounded by the Bell Buckle Secret Service Foot Patrol. An Army of Six Children will be Dressed in RC Cola Can Costumes, Moon Pie Hats, Sunglasses and Ear Pieces. The "Royal Family" will be Escorted Safely to Captain Rodney's Main Stage for the Official Coronation.
Taking Center Stageas Always, is the Wildly Popular RC Cola and Moon Pie Games! The Games Include the Moon Pie Toss, Watermellon Seed Spitting, and a Hog Calling Contest. The Perfect Ending to the Day Will Be when the Royal Family Cuts and Serves the "Worlds Largest Moon Pie" to Their New Court. In Bell Buckle We Say, "Let Them Eat Cake" with a Big, Gooey Smile!
I Hope Everyone Who Can Attend Makes Their Pilgrimage to Exciting Bell Buckle Tennessee. I Had to Go Up There This Week to Take Pictures and Get the Story to Share to Y'All...All I Can Say Is; That This Town Is Intoxicating With Its Energy and Excitement! With Moon Pies Stacked to The Ceiling at "Phillips General Store" And RC Colas for Days, This Weekend Thousands Will Be There. Now I Can Honestly Say I Know Why Bell Buckle Was Nominated To Be One of The "Best Towns in America Contest!" I Will Be There With A Big Smile to Enjoy The Annual Activities.
Have a Great Day!
