Taste of Omaha draws thousands for the annual food festival.
In the 17th year of the festival, attendees say the range of cuisines continue to grow. The festival showcases the best restaurants in the metro area.
"I have been to maybe twenty of the vendors to eat and everything is top notch--everybody puts it on big time," says Jim Mohatt, a vendor and owner of Boxer BBQ Company in Council Bluffs.
Mohatt sells large, free range turkey drumsticks, and says they sell out every year.
An annual festival goer says he also enjoys the live music.
"Some of the groups that come here are in our age era so we just love that kind of thing, and my wife and I even get up and dance once in awhile," says Sam Farris.
The festival ends Sunday. It is free.
