The saucy crowd at Five Points is gearing up for East Nashville's annual Tomato Art Festival, which returns to the neighborhood Aug. 8.

The TAF blog is bulging with juicy tidbits, from the children's art contest to bobbing for tomatoes to the West African drum circle to the tomato-themed costume parade led by Halfbrass. There's a call for nominations for Tomato King and Queen, and Meg MacFadyen (wait--isn't SHE already the tomato queen?) just announced that Tia Thompson swept the tomato bumper sticker contest with her slogan: "East Nashville, Getting Saucier Every Summer."

The Tomato Art Festival kicks off on Saturday morning with a fun run at 7 a.m., but there are events leading up to it all week. (All those Bloody Mary recipes don't judge themselves, you know.) For a complete calendar of tomato-related festivities, visit the official website.

Meanwhile, don't forget that July 31 (that's today) is the deadline for the Tomato Haiku contest.
