December is finally here and if you are a Texan you know that the holidays and homemade tamales go hand in hand.

With that in mind why not make plans to attend the Yoakum County Tamale Fest in Denver City.

There will be a tamale eating contest, food vendors, live music from Texas Crossing, Mariachi San Francisco, and Jere’ Lowe.

Santa will be there and for two cans of food you can get your picture made with Jolly St. Nick.

So why not make a day trip to Denver City and kick off the holiday season at the Yoakum County Tamale Fest.

Fun starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday.

Get all the details here.
