Aren't you hungry for some family fun?
The Town of West Springfield, MA and the Rotary Club of West Springfield are proud to present the 2012 ""West Side's Taste of the Valley"", West Springfield’s annual weekend long gathering of local restaurants on the Park Street Town Common. This fun community event annually draws over 40,000 people from all over the Pioneer Valley to sample various dishes from a diverse mix of restaurants. Staffed by hundreds of volunteers from throughout the community, this is one of the few remaining restaurant “taste” events in Western Massachusetts.
Apart from a diverse selection of food choices from local vendors, the weekend is also highlighted by family friendly entertainment and activities. The Taste is well known for its ongoing live musical entertainment, featuring local acts performing a wide variety of styles. We also have a midway of rides and games for kids & teens, animal rides and a petting zoo.
A highlight of the event is Saturday's ""Cruise,” a display of classic, antique and special interest cars owned by local residents. Entries are judged and awarded trophies and gift certificates to local restaurants.
