    Since nobody ‘round these parts has ever attempted this, we had to have our very own spit made right here in Valley Junction by the Village Welder that can handle a 1200 pound locally grown steer.

    It is a family-friendly celebration. Watch the CyHawk game on the ginormous screens indoors or in The Beer Garden.

    All proceeds go to the Justice League of Food in support of their culinary job training program for the most vulnerable members of our community.
