17th Annual RC Moon Pie Festival
June 18, 2011
In the rolling hills of middle Tennessee lies the tiny town of Bell Buckle and on the third Saturday in June two Southern traditions, RC Colas and a Moon Pie, are brought together for a grand celebration. It's a jam packed day of fun for the whole family. There is plenty of country and bluegrass music, clogging dancers, Moon Pie games, crafts, and the ever popular "Synchronized Wading Extravaganza". The food vendors will feature Southern fares such as Tennessee Smoked Barbecue, hand squeezed lemonade and deep fried Moon Pies. Cutting of the world's largest Moon Pie rounds out the day.
Also take part in the RC Moon Pie 10 mile run. Approximately 1,000 runners taking part in the 17th annual RC-Moon Pie 10 Mile Run. The grueling course is both a challenge and delight for runners aging from 10 to the over 70’s crowd. Run beside someone during this race and make a friend. Bonds are created between those who conquer "The Hill". All is worth it when you make the turn into the backstretch lined with cheering people and the smell of good food being cooked up just for you. Pomp and circumstance reign with the coronation of the King and Queen.A day of fun for young and old celebrating THREE southern traditions: RC Colas, Moon Pies and Historic Bell Buckle, Tennessee- where we are 100 years behind the times and proud of it!
