    My all-time favorite food festival is the World’s Biggest Fish Fry Festival in Paris, TN! It happens every April, and not only is there an opportunity to eat all the fish and hushpuppies you’d ever want, but there’s a fair and, my favorite, catfish racing!

    Pipper and her friends would have a blast seeing who’s catfish would win!
