The economic engine of the local area will be honored this weekend in the city of Eldon. Dee Spaulding with the Eldon Chamber of Commerce says this weekend’s 26th annual Turkey Fest is a celebration of local industry.
Morgan County is the largest turkey producing county in the state, followed by Miller County. Spaulding says events start tomorrow.
Last year festival attendees ate over 1,100 turkey legs and 204 pounds of turkey breast strips.
