The menu for the Big Feast on Sunday includes everything from alligator, buffalo wings, fish, ribs, beans, chili, chicken, brisket, pork tenderloin, and as the event's treasurer Bobby Wilson said "there's no telling what all you'll find to eat at the "Fire & Ice Feast."
The "Big Feast" is Sunday beginning at 11 AM when the gates open.the feed starts at 11:30 am until it's gone and that usually happens around 12:45 to 1 PM. Tickets for the Big Feast are $25 available at the gate only.
The volunteer fire departments not only help protect our homes and property around West Texas, but these brave souls are out there saving lives every time there's a vehicle crash on the nearby highway or out in the country.
Fire & Ice has raised over half of a million dollars in the last 12 years to help these VFDs.
