Camofest wild game "guides" featured chili, deep-fried oreos, pulled pork, gumbo and other food samples Saturday. From left Megan Pate, Paul Hickl and Janet Hickl try some of James Scardemi's axis deer chili with beans.

   Saturday’s rainfall did little to diminish crowd enthusiasm for this year’s Camofest, said Main Street Director Pattie Odom.
   The National Weather Service recorded over half an inch of rain in Bay City Saturday, Jan. 27, and most of that happened at the mid-way point during the third annual Wild Game and Wine Camofest.
   “The crowd was phenomenal,” said Odom.
   “The rain did not dampen the enthusiasm of the crowd or the vendors, who stayed until the party was over at 6 p.m.,” Odom added.
   “As we put Camofest 2018 to rest, although we are a bit soggy, the Camofest Committee is delighted with the turnout and participation for Camofest!” 
   Camofest 2018 featured eight wineries and 11 cooking teams.
   “That’s an increase from last year,” said Odom. 
   “We also had Texas craft beer and great entertainment.”  
   Several other events teamed up as part of Camofest to turn a previously Saturday-only event into a weekend for children and adults alike.
