For those longing for another goat cook-off, after the big Goat Cook-Off in Brady, Texas over Labor Day Weekend the Cabrito (goat) Cook-Off is coming up in Marathon, Texas.
Mark your calendar, the dates are Saturday, September 17th and Sunday September 18th, 2011. This is the 10th annual West Fest. Cooks will present their goat dishes to the judges as they vie for the top cash prize. Come out and participate in washer pitching, team roping, softball as well as a dance on Saturday night featuring live music. Just turn on Ave D in downtown Marathon, travel 5 miles south and you will arrive at Post Park, site of West Fest 2011. Post Park, for you frontier fort history buffs, was once a cavalry fort called Camp Pena Colorado, a sub-post of the better known Fort Davis. www.marathontexas.com 432-386-4482
