Peach-shutterstock_156329873[dropcap]If[/dropcap] you’ve ever wondered what a 2,400-pound peach cobbler looks like, the Porter Peach Festival has you covered. To celebrate the festival’s 50th anniversary this year, they’ll be weighing this massive cobbler in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record.

If it isn’t obvious, the spotlight of the festivities is the delicious peach and the numerous treats made with it. For example, you can watch or participate in a peach eating contest or a baking competition.

For a little exercise to combat all that sugar, the Peach Classic 5K is just the ticket. You can also take time to stroll through the car and bike shows, or partake in the lively water sponge relay, balloon toss, or scavenger hunt.

And for some dynamic entertainment, be sure to check out the Porter Peach Pageant, live musical acts, talent competitions or the antique tractor pull.

The Festival will run from July 14-16 in downtown Porter. For more information, visit

Update: A previous version of this story said the location of the festival was at the Livesay Orchards, however it actually takes place in downtown Porter. This has been corrected.
