The annual Taste of Marco supports the Greater Marco Family YMCA with a daylong celebration of food and fun Sunday.
In its 23rd year, Taste of Marco offers the public a chance to sample the gourmet and the down-home good, all prepared by chefs from Marco Island restaurants to support a worthy cause.
While you’re walking from booth to booth to nosh, you can take time out to watch the waiter/waitress obstacle-course race at 1:30 p.m. (waiters and waitresses can register until noon for the 2 p.m. race). There’s a kiddie area with sand art, bounce house and climbing walls. Beach Dogs will be grilling kid-friendly hot dogs for them.
The Greg Miller Band offers some music to dine by.
Admission is $5 for adults, and tickets, with samples costing one or more tickets, are $1 each. Children 12 and younger are free with paid adult admission.
