Come early and come hungry - that's the message from the organizers of this weekend's Taste of the Town in Watertown.

Set-up was underway Friday for the festival which features local restaurants dishing out sample-sized portions of their signature dishes. 

Admission is $3 and sample tickets can be purchased at the door.

Taste of the Town benefits the Victims Assistance Center of Jefferson County.

"There's lots of food from chocolates to soups to meals to...pasta," said Irene Carmen of the Victims Assistance Center.

The event runs from 11 a.m until 2 p.m. Saturday at the Dulles State Office Building.
