If you are looking for something fun to do this Saturday, head to downtown Pittsburg and check out the Texas Hot Link Festival. The excitement begins at 10 a.m. and will feature a variety of food, vendors, concerts and events. The festival is commemorating the 100th birthday of Carroll Shelby with several of the day’s events themed around the late racing legend. These will include a car show hosted by the NTCC Shelby Automotive Program (starting at 10 a.m. in the parking lot of the First United Methodist Church Ministry Center), a historical marker dedication at the Leesburg cemetery where Shelby is buried, a Carroll Shelby Chili Cook-Off and a Shelby Centennial Reception hosted by NTCC at the culinary arts school later in the evening. Several NTCC workforce programs will also have booths at the festival.
