Except for a somewhat damaged tongue, I had a great time covering Collinsville's International Horseradish Festival for Fiery Foods & BBQ Magazine. It's hard for me to cover events like this because I'm not very outgoing. Anyone who has advice for conquering this problem, let me know! I usually try to make contact through email first, so I don't have to walk up to someone cold.
Here are a couple pictures from the festival. That upside down thing is a horseradish root balloon.
