Description: Some like it hot, and some like it REALLY hot. The Smoke-N-Fire Food Fest for those folks. At this first ever event, organized by New City resident and local business owner Kendell Brenner, attendees can sample specialty foods from hot sauce and spice companies as well as food from area restaurants and produce from local farms. The event will include a Rockland County culinary competition, which is open to culinary students in both high schools and colleges. A separate category is open to Hudson Valley chefs. Activities for the public include live music, children's entertainment, a fire juggler and, of course, a spicy food eating contest. A portion of ticket sales will benefit the local charity, Baking Memories 4 Kids, which allows terminally ill children a chance for a dream vacation.
