LAWTON, Okla_Tomatoes are often associated with hot weather and summer time. So in honor of the popular vegetable, the Lawton Farmer's Market held their second annual Tomato Fest.
In conjunction with the Southwest Grower's Association and the Fit Kids Coalition, this year's Tomato Fest was targeted specifically at kids to show them how important and easy it is to live a healthy life style.
There was a tomato themed art show, a tomato catch-up half mile race and of course tons of tomatoes for the eating.
"Tomatoes is a very very popular thing. That is the first thing people ask is the fresh tomatoes, " said grower Diana Isom.
