Legend has it that in 1885, two brothers from Akron created a delicious sandwich - the hamburger. This year is the 10th anniversary of the National Hamburger Festival in awesome, Akron, Ohio.
The 10th Annual National Hamburger Festival presented by the City of Akron at Lock 3 Park, is this weekend, August 8-9. Admission is only $5 and children under 8 are free. The Festival supports Akron Children's Hospital.
The event features 50 styles of hamburgers from over 20 eateries throughout Northeast Ohio. 50 styles of hamburgers. FIFTY. There is fun for all, including "Bobbing for Burgers" and the Ohio Amateur Hamburger Eating Contest (including a team from The Akron Fire Department!). For the grown ups, an Ohio Craft Beer Tasting and Indie Band Showcase is included on Sunday.
Now for the fun part. The awesome folks at the Festival have given me a pack of four tickets to giveaway to one of you luck readers.
