The Edinburg Chamber of Commerce would like to invite everyone to Texas Cook’em: High Steaks in Edinburg.

The Cook off will take place on Saturday, July 4, at Edinburg Municipal Park with a grand fireworks display at 9:15 p.m., free children’s activities including face painting, dance contest, pony rides and more in the Kids Zone, good barbeque and music by Michael Salgado, La Sombra Reunion, Texas Heat and various other local bands for only $10 a car load.

Cook’em is also currently accepting cooks for the following categories: T-bone steak, chicken, ribs, and brisket; over $15,000 in prize money will be awarded. Judges are also needed for each category.

Interested applicants should call the Edinburg Chamber of Commerce, as limited spaces are available, and everything is arranged on a first-come, first-serve basis. The public is invited to come out, bring their lawn chairs and enjoy a day of fun under the sun, Texas style!

The Chamber is grateful for contributions from the City of Edinburg, the Edinburg Economic Development Corporation, the Edinburg Convention and Visitors Bureau, Memorial Funeral Home, the City of Hidalgo, Budweiser, HEB, The Edinburg Review, and Que Pasa.
