Majestic Media Inc. proudly presents Tamale Fest! This is the fourth year of the event and it's all for a great cause!! This event is a contest to see what restaurant has the best tamales in town. And its more than just Tamales, most restaurants plan on having three to four items for sale. We will also have our famous Jalapeño Eating Contest. Music line up includes Mariachis, a Folkloric Dance Troupe, Bands, and Dj's. All of this plus art, vendors, and games for the entire family.
