What to eat & drink:

Besides just about all the tomato-based foodstuffs you could ever want - mmm, fried green tomatoes - there are concession stands with gyros, hamburgers, jambalaya, pizza, pretzels and more.

Entertainment:

Country songstress and Reynoldsburg native Ashley Everts will perform at 8:30 p.m. Friday, and renowned party band the Danger Brothers will have a rockin' good time playing hits from the '50s through the '90s at 6 p.m. Saturday.

Don't miss:

There's just something great about watching cheesy horror movies outside in the summer. And, in a brilliant bit of irony, the amazing "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" will screen at dusk Friday at Tomato Fest.
