HUMBOLDT ? The highlight of Saturday?s annual Biblesta is an afternoon parade, but, as always, much goes into any event ahead of time.
Monday morning Larry Barnett spent a couple of hours, with the aid of Kenny Lumley and his metal detector, locating tie-down spikes for a large tent where beans will be cooked. The free bean feed has been a staple of Biblesta since it started in 1958. Serving starts at 5 p.m., Saturday.
Friday morning Barnett will pull the iron pots from storage and oversee the slicing and dicing of several bags of onions.
