The smell of barbecue will fill the air this weekend as the Annual Hispanic Heritage Cook-Off "Fiesta Del Centro" is set for Friday and Saturday, Sept. 13 and 14 in downtown Alice.

The cook-off is organized by the Hispanic Heritage Committee, who works year-round to plan the IBCA sanctioned event.

The main cook-off categories include brisket, chicken and pork spare ribs, with a $150 entry fee. The prices include first place $500, second place $250, third place $100, fourth place $50 and fifth place $50.

There will also be a fajita jackpot with a $25 entry fee with a 50/50 pay out.

A special event for this year's event is the Kid's Pork Chop Cook-off at 11 a.m. Saturday. The entry fee is $20 per child with two pork chops and spices provided. The age categories are 8 to 11 years old and 12 to 14 years old. Registration starts at 10 a.m.

Entertainment for the two-day event includes music by Groupo Xprezzion, Tejas Brothers, Ricky Naranjo y Los Gamblers on Friday night; and Richard Castillon y la Diferenzia on Saturday.

The cook-off judging will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday for the fajita jackpot, 11 a.m. for chicken, 1 p.m. for pork spare ribs and 3 p.m. for brisket.

"All the money raised goes towards scholarship that the committee awards to students," Rojelio Cuellar said. "We hope to have a successful even this year."

Cuellar said 32 teams have signed up for the cook-off with calls still coming in.

Friday night events start at 6 p.m. with entertainment wrapping up at midnight. Saturday events start at 8 a.m. with a cook's meeting.
