For 44 years the Parks Cracklin Cook-Off Festival
Association has provided money, time, and assistance to individuals, schools, churches, and other Nonprofit Organizations. In this same timeframe the members have changed but the message remains the
same. “We Want To Help”.
It all started with Mark Dore’, a local
musician and a couple of civic minded, hard-working people from the Parks community.
The Parks Cracklin Cook-Off Festival
Association is held the Friday & Saturday after Easter Sunday, every year.
The Cook-Off is dedicated to the memory of Mark Dore’. Over
the years the organization has lost a few more members.
