Tons turn out for Tasting Bee

March 8, 2012

Lunch was served at the annual North Dakota Winter Show Tasting Bee on Wednesday at the National Guard Armory on Winter Show Road.

With everything costing only a quarter, the line for change stretched out the door shortly after the two-hour event opened at 11 a.m.

“We had 50 rolls of quarters; we have one roll left but a lot of people bring their own,” said Marge Bessette of the NDWS Women’s Division, which puts the Tasting Bee together.

While hundreds turned out for the popular event, Bessette said it is still not the largest affair the division handles.
