Planners of Taste of Delano are encouraging visitors to purchase tickets in advance to help participating restaurants plan how much food to bring.

Taste of Delano is billed as a place to try “Food from around the World.” Entrees will range from pizza to Chinese cuisine to American submarine sandwiches and other types of edibles in between. Featured desserts will include ice cream dishes and chocolate.

While adults are chowing down and chatting, children will find activities such as a moon walk, face painting and petting zoo. Elvis will croon and Chopper “The World’s Nuttiest DJ” will air musical selections.
