Thursday on Lubbock's First News, Adam Benke gave detail on the 44th annual Sausage Festival.

The festival will be held in Slaton, Texas at St. Joseph's Hall from Saturday October 19th through Sunday October 20th, serving a meal on Sunday from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. The plates will include German sausage, chicken, and sides. A plate for adults is $9 and it is $6 for a child's plate. A funfest will also take place on Sunday from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm at St. Joseph's School. This will include auctions, games, and other entertainment.

On Saturday, uncooked sausage will be sold by the pound from 9 am to 1 pm.These will include regular sausage, jalapeño sausage, and habañero sausage. Benke described the sausages: "This year we've got some excelent whole hog sausage. The regular is always good. This year the jalapeno sausage is not so brutally hot; however, the habanero is hot but it dissipates pretty quickly. You have to get there early Saturday morning."
