16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Concession Stand Food in America
At almost any event in the US, concession stand food is a highlight for people who attend. The fragrant aromas, the large colorful signs, and stainless steel bins filled with food attracts a lot of attention.
This is no different for the Watermelon Festival in Russellville, Alabama. The festival is the largest event in the county held on the 3rd weekend in August that attracts thousands of people each year.
I thought that this angle that highlighted people's favorite foods seemed like a good subject to photograph. It shows what people in the southern states of America typically like when they attend events.
