Friends of the Library groups are always having to think of new and different ways to raise money for their library. Here in Eastham (MA) on Cape Cod, it's the second annual Turnip Festival. Eastham is in love - with the turnip.
Sure, it may sound unconventional, a town falling in love with a root vegetable, but then how could they resist? A veggie that can be eaten, dressed and used as a bowling ball is just too good to be true. Turnip enthusiasts are encouraged to join in the festivities this Saturday which include a cook-off, a turnip trot, turnip bowling and the crowning of Mr. Turnip.
