The only thing better than the weather Saturday may have been the food during the first Taste of Forsyth Along the Hospitality Highway.Organized by the city, the event drew 6,000 to 8,000 people to the Cumming Fairgrounds, officials said."Of course, we had great weather and we had a good variety of restaurants," said Dave Horton, fairgrounds administrator. "We just had a good variety of food available and had some great sponsors out there."Most of the participating eateries were local, though there were a few from outside of the county. There was no admission fee, but dishes cost from $1 to $4 each.A range of fare was available, from crab cakes and barbecue to bratwurst and nachos.
