Bite of Salem


This weekend through Sunday is the Bite of Salem in Riverfront Park downtown. Various local restaurants are serving up their dishes. And there is live music, beer and wine gardens, and carnival rides for the kids. I loved the lady's flower dress in front of the Hawaiian Maui Wowi Hawaiian Coffee & Smoothies booth.

I had a Chicken Caesar Wrap from the Sassy Onion (review by EatSalem). I scored it an 8/10 (needed a little more Caesar and fresh grated Parmesan). DH had a burrito from Jr's Taqueria (review by EatSalem) and rated it a 7/10.

Admission is free though they ask for a $3 donation. Proceeds from the Bite benefit Salem's youth, including the Boys and Girls Club, many youth oriented events, and numerous community, musical, and athletic programs.

$3 sounds like a bargain! Must be crowded.

It sounds as if everyone benefits...the local associations receive funding and the public gets to rnjoy different food and events.
