PASCO, Wash.- If you were looking to challenge your taste buds Saturday was the Fiery Food Festival in Downtown Pasco.
The intersection of Lewis and 4th ave was closed for pedestrian traffic only so the people of the Tri-Cities could walk around, enjoy the music, a beer garden and plenty of spicy foods. The event coincided with the weekly farmers market and was great for vendors doing business and selling produce.
"The Farmers Market always does well, but the Fiery Foods is something different and special," said Mike Somerville, the manager of the Farmers Market. "They've got contests and things like that now and there will be more and more of it. Yeah, we need more events in Downtown Pasco."
The Farmers Market normally closes at 1 pm, but Saturday some vendors stayed open for the festival which wrapped up at 8 pm.
