Ten bucks doesn't get you much these days (unless you're heading to one of our favorite budget-friendly lunch spots), but for that one meager bill, you can slurp down all the macaroni and cheese you can handle at the O-Town MacDown on Saturday, Sept. 12, at the Osceola Heritage Park.

The event is a competition between 30 different vendors, including Jillycakes (known for their killer savory cupcakes), Pammie's Sammies, and grilled cheese restaurant Tom & Chee, a newcomer to the Orlando restaurant scene – but a favorite everywhere else in the South. 

Also on deck: live entertainment, cooking demos, kids play areas (including a macaroni art station, naturally), and (crucial) free parking. Proceeds benefit Give Kids the World Village, so you can balance that carby guilt with knowing you're doing good for children all over the globe.
