This is the 28th year of the event in El Paso, but the first year it has been offered as a drive-thru activity. The dates are June 24-26 at the El Paso County Coliseum, 4100 E. Paisano Drive.
The event is free and will run from 10 a.m.-noon all three days.
Understanding food, fiber
“The goal is to help students and their parents have a better understanding of where their food and fiber comes from,” said Felicia Martinez, AgriLife Extension 4-H agent, El Paso County. “There will be 12 agricultural presentations, including ones on pecans, cotton, livestock, a mobile dairy and vegetables from our very own Texas Master Gardeners.”
Martinez said participants will be given a QR code upon arrival to access an app that will provide additional information about the 12 stops along the tour. Every vehicle will receive a goodie bag, and milk and cookies will be provided for everyone who attends.
