Cheeseburger cooking and car show coming up

The annual Cheeseburger Cook-Off and Festival will be held Saturday July 20 at the Friona city park, sponsored by the Friona Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture. Musician Kris Gordon and his band will be performing live.

Cheeseburger Cook-Off teams will be competing for $1,000 and $300 in prize money. For cook-off team or vendor booth forms see the chamber website,

Cheeseburgers will be served to the public beginning at 11:30 a.m. Cost is $7.00 for a cheeseburger and chips. Each bracelet has tabs for a ¼ cheeseburger serving from the different cook-off sites.

Vote for People’s Choice burgers by placing dollars in designated cans at each cook-off site. One dollar equals one vote. The money contributed will go to the Parmer County Cancer Coalition.

Deadline for cook-off entries and vendor booths is July 12. Among the vendors, the Friona Noon Lions will be selling their world famous french-fries. There will be a cheeseburger eating contest at a time to be announced. The eating contest will be limited to 10 participants. There is no cost to enter. Forms to enter are available at the Chamber office, 621 Main St. or at the park the day of the cook-off.
