Hy-Vee will be host its first Fall Fest Spectacular Friday evening, sampling a variety of fall-flavored foods and beverages.
As summer dies down, Hy-Vee is “kicking off the fall season” by showcasing fall flavors of craft beer, wine and other cocktails.
Food samples will be available as well as Hy-Vee giving visitors a chance to taste its new lineup of Hickory House Comfort Foods.
“As we are getting out of summer we thought, ‘Hey lets give everyone a taste of what fall taste likes,’” said Store Manager Jeremy Odem. “We just switched our Hy-Vee Kitchen to Hickory House Comfort Foods and it’s a whole new lineup.”
Interested parties can expect samples of food such as smoked foods, barbecue, meatloaf and mac and cheese.
Odem hopes to attract not only fall food fans, but football fans as well.
“Why not the night before Iowa-Iowa State and try to gain some excitement there,”said Odem.
The Fall Fest spectacular runs from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday evening, but Hy-Vee is also offering a special fuel saver promotion all day Friday.
“We are running a fuel saver promotion where customers can save 50 cents per gallon with every $50 spent,” said Odem.
The event will be hosted inside the store with samples taking over aisle one just inside the front door.
The Spectacular is open to everyone and is free of charge.
