BELL BUCKLE — Get ready for one of the best pairings in Southern history: RC Cola and a Moon Pie. The 18th annual RC-Moon Pie Festival, named a Top 20 event by Southeastern Tourism Society, will be held June 15.

Festivities kick off with the RC-Moon Pie 10-mile run where more than 1,000 runners will compete on the scenic but challenging course and then will be rewarded with a full breakfast at the finish line.

RC’s and Moon Pies are celebrated in every way possible with a parade, bluegrass music, dancing, the coronation of the king and queen and games featuring the two classics in every way imaginable.

Speakeasy, a rock ‘n roll band, will perform and delight festival goers. The festival will culminate with the cutting of the World’s Largest Moon Pie where everyone gets a taste of the gooey treat for free.
