Vendors, volunteers and tasters had a wonderful afternoon at the 2019 Taste of Flowood. The event was held at Mirror Lake Plaza on Lakeland Drive. Food tents were set up outside while restaurant owners served samples of their signature dishes to the delight of ticket holders.
The weather could not have been more perfect. The food was scrumptious, and a local band entertained participants throughout the evening.
Over 35 vendors served food and liquid refreshment to the sold out crowd. There was a vast array of tasty treats, from BBQ to grilled oysters, shrimp, chicken salad, steak, prime rib, sub sandwiches, homemade mac and cheese, tea, coffee, and specialty drinks, and a wide variety of cakes, cookies, puddings, and tiramisu.
There were activities for the kids too, with a bouncy house, corn hole toss, and face painting. The Flowood Fire Department was on hand with tours of the fire trucks.
The Taste of Flowood is an annual event sponsored by the Flowood Chamber of Commerce. If you've never attended, add this to your bucket list for 2020. You won't be disappointed.
