    The chance to be at a food fair is good enough reason to travel. I would like to have a taste of the cheese empanada. It sounds so good. I wish i lived closer to Virginia. This would be such a fun event to go to.

    Virginia is one beautiful place to visit. We explored one of their cities last year and we had fun! Food is delicious!

    Taste of Virigina sounds awesome. Atlanta has a version here too.

  9. 05/12/2017 / 6:31 am

    That looks wonderful. I’m not very food-worldly so I confess I never knew quite what an empanada was before. Now I get it.

  10. 05/12/2017 / 12:52 am

    Everything you mentioned sounds and looks absolutely scrumptious! This is totally up my alley and my kind of foodie event. Those popovers – wowza! I’ve never seen anything so creative for a popover before.

  11. 05/11/2017 / 8:51 pm

    I’ve never been to an event like this. I’ll have to see if I can work in a trip there the next time they ‘re going to have one of these.

    Now this is one event that would make me feel bad if I could not attend. Okay, now I am feeling bad. We live too far from Virginia! Anyway, I hope you have a great time!

  13. 05/11/2017 / 5:25 pm

    Oh wow this sounds like such a fun event if I happened to be nearby I would totally have to make sure I made it.

  14. 05/11/2017 / 3:57 pm

    Oh fun, I’d enjoy going. I love to eat so I’d like all this food. Desserts make me very happy! We’ll be in Virginia this summer.

    I love Damaris! This looks like such delicious fun. I was just thinking before I read this about how we are going to Virginia, but not until October.

  16. 05/11/2017 / 1:45 pm

    That looks like such a fun time! I’ve been to Kings Island and Cedar Point which are both run by Cedar Fair, but I’ve never been during a food event. I would love to though!

  17. 05/11/2017 / 1:23 pm

    These different tasting events are always so popular. This one sounds wonderful and a day full of great food.

  18. 05/11/2017 / 1:02 pm

    I would love to take a big bite out of Virginia by visiting Kings Dominion! The food looks amazing and the trip is perfect for a family vacation. I need to visit soon!
