CAC promoting the arts in Cuba

    The Cuba Arts Council would like to invite you to join us at the Route 66 Cuba Fest 2013 on October 19-20, 2013, our 52nd Year!  Once again, we will be offering our "Wine Sipping Tent," "The Taste of Cuba," and "Funky Fashions." We will be located at the corners of Smith and B Streets.

    "The Taste of Cuba" will have an array of foods from some of the area's finest restaurants, gourmet cooks, vendors, and community organizations.  Stroll through the Recklein Courtyard on both days from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and sample some of their wonderful foods. "The Taste of Cuba" participants will include Heintz Gourmet, turkey legs; VFW, fish sandwiches; Wildwood Kettle Corn, kettle corn; Olivia's, pork kabobs; Uncle Charlie's Deep Fried Secrets, funnel cakes; 1st Apostolic Church, quesadillas; Prairie 4-H Club, brisket sandwiches; Cuba Lions Club, pork steak sandwiches; Crossroads 4-H Club, sloppy joes;  Public House Brewing Co., micro brewed beers; 1st Presbyterian Church, hamburgers;  Shelly's, biscuits and gravy; Dottie's Family Restaurant, BBQ ribs; Little Jack Horner's Desserts, pie; Shirley Carroll, pork rinds; Manfred’s Gourmet Golden Cider Toffee;  and Cuba Manor, BBQ pulled pork. CAC is sure one of our "Taste of Cuba" vendors will have something to treat your taste buds!
    CAC's "Wine Sipping Tent" will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday.  For a nominal fee, you may purchase a Cuba Arts Council coveted "one-of-a-kind hand painted wine glass." While sipping wine under our tent, you can relax, socialize with friends, or watch and visit with our guest artist, Joan Mensio as she is painting.  Perhaps she may sell you one of her pieces of art!
    On Sunday at 1 p.m. Cuba Arts Council will be hosting its annual "Funky Fashions" contest.  Contestants will be modeling their creative costumes containing no fabric, aka cloth.  Cash prizes will be awarded. 
    So, if you are looking for a crafty present, something to eat, something to drink, or to express your fashion sense, join the Cuba Arts Council at the Route 66 Cuba Fest 2013!  For more information, you may go to http://cubamomurals .com/route-66-cuba-fest-2013/
