Spiedie fest & Balloon Rally facts
Spiedie's are a marinated cube of chicken, veal, pork and are put on a skewer and cooked on a grill
Spiedie's are unique to our area and legend has it came over from Italy in the 30's and 40's
In 1982 and 1983 there was a Spiedie Fest with families arguing over the best Spiedie Recipe
Still today a Spiedie Cooking Contest is held every year with people coming from all over to be crowned King
The secret to a great Spiedie is in the marinade
In 1984 the First Spiedie Fest Balloon Rally was held and 4000 people attended
In 2001 the Spiedie Fest received a Local Legacy Award and a permanent display sits in The Library of Congress in Washington D.C.
So much Family Fun!
