Tomato Festival Kicks Off

People are seeing red in Jacksonville, but not because they're mad. They're gearing up for the 20th Annual Tomato Festival. Things kicked off with Best Home Grown Tomato Contest.

Tomatoes were judged on everything from looks and taste to color and size. The Tomato Fest will be going on all day tomorrow starting at 9 a.m. in downtown Facksonville.

Activities include tomato eating contests, a salsa contest, and a race at the Thunder Mountain Speedway.
