Hey if you’re looking for something a little different and fun for the entire family to do this weekend I have a great suggestion: How about heading down to the Sixth Annual Sanpitch Rhubarb Festival. It takes place from 11 to 6 this Saturday, May 14th, in Mount Pleasant. And I guarantee, at the Rhubarb festival you’ll be rolling in Rhubarb!

There’s a fun parade which includes Rhubarb Royalty and lots of floats and then some fun contests like the World’s Best Rhubarb Pie Contest and an Ugly Truck contest, not to mention a soapbox derby, a raw rhubarb eating contest, live music from The Brothers Rhubarb, heritage craft demonstrations, dueling blacksmiths, rhubarb soap making, burgers with rhubarb salsa, and lots more.

In fact it looks like all of Mount Pleasant will be breaking out the rhubarb this weekend in honor of the Sixth Annual Sanpitch Rhubarb Festival. There’ll be rhubarb pizza at Hub City, rhubarb shakes at Jennie’s Dari-Freeze, and all-you-can-eat pancakes with – what else? – rhubarb syrup at the City Lunch Café. And then to top it all off we’ll crown the Rhubarb Maiden and The Queen of Rhubarb.

Well to me that all sounds like tons of fun, and healthy to boot! For more information about the Sixth Annual Sanpitch Rhubarb Festival call Winnie Wood or Bob Sorenson at 435-462-9261. That’s Winnie and Bob at 435-462-9261. Come to think of it, I’ve got a hankerin’ for rhubarb. So I hope to see you down in Mount Pleasant this Saturday.
