This Sunday brings another chance to eat, drink, and be merry in the name of charity.
Taste of the Park, Litchfield Park's third annual culinary festival, will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. on October 18 in downtown Litchfield Park, at Old Litchfield Rd. and Wigwam Blvd.
And it actually benefits a variety of good causes, thanks to the area's Rotary Club. The Boys and Girls Club, families at Luke Air Force Base, St. Mary's Food Bank, and a well project in Africa are just a few of the club's beneficiaries.
Among the food tastings, look for tasty nibbles from AJ's Persian Grill, Blu Sushi, Old Pueblo, Taps, and the Wigwam Resort. There will also be wine, beer, and sake, a silent auction, and even a belly dancing performance. For tickets, $50, call 623-444-4416.
