Friday and Saturday each begin with the Chuckwagon Breakfast, held outdoors at Poet's Grove in Kokernot Park from 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM. For a reasonable price of $5, you can enjoy a hearty breakfast of biscuits, sausage gravy, and eggs prepared in Dutch ovens over an open fire, along with coffee and orange juice.
