Kick back and enjoy some of the best bluegrass bands in the region while snacking on some home grown strawberries, as the smell of tasty BBQ from a grill floats through the air during Berries, Bluegrass and BBQ Festival in Anderson.

The fifth annual Berries, Bluegrass & BBQ Festival is on the banks of Indian Creek at beautiful Town Hole Park. Come early to get a good spot on the lawn and get in on the donut-eating contest Winners get a T-shirt, a discount card to Poppy's Daylight Donut Shop and bragging rights of being the fastest donut eater in Southwest Missouri.

Or just come to watch. It's great fun.

Hang around and watch the cuties parade by in their strawberry best during the annual Little Miss Strawberry pageant.

Take a stroll around the many arts and crafts booths and maybe pick up some hard-to-find treasures.

Get a festival T-shirt and some historic postcards from the Anderson Betterment Club booth. Try your luck at a carnival game.

Then grab some tasty barbecue, kettle corn, flavored nuts -- if you're hungry for it, you can probably find it here.

Then lop down and listen to some of the best pickin' and playin' you'll ever hear. Anderson Betterment Club has some of the best Bbluegrass bands in the region set to perform.

Admission is free.
