The Sallisaw Chamber of Commerce reports 25 contestants have signed up for the High Steaks Rollin’ contest.
The contest will be held June 3 during the Diamond Daze festival at the Sallisaw High School complex.
Diamond Daze, sponsored by the Sallisaw Chamber of Commerce, will be held June 1 through 3. Admission is $5 per carload on June 1, $10 per person on June 2, $5 per carload until 5 p.m. on June 3 and $10 per person after 5 p.m. For information log on to www.sallisawchamber.com or call the chamber office at 918-775-2558.
The High Steaks Rollin’ contest is sponsored by Guardian Angels Animal Care Inc. Entrants were able to save $30 on the entry fee of $160 by donating a 25-pound bag of dog food, which will be used to feed homeless dogs.
The contest is sanctioned by the Steak Cookoff Association (SCA), and the winner gets $1,000, a trophy and entry into the SCA Steak World Championship. Second place gets $700, third gets $500, fourth gets $350, and fifth gets $200. Winners in the appetizer contest get $250 and a plaque for first and $100 for second.
The High Steaks Rollin' contest does not offer steak tasting to festival visitors, but many other food vendors will be available to keep hunger at bay during the festival.
Other fun activities at the festival include a carnival, and Friday Family Night armbands for the carnival are available now at the Sallisaw Chamber of Commerce.
Also on the schedule are a 5K run, arts and crafts, pony rides, helicopter rides, a car show, and entertainment nightly on the Diamond Daze Stage featuring local talent and well-known artists Craig Morgan and Phil Vassar.
