Join us on Saturday October 22 for the return of the 2022 Pontotoc Food Fight. This event will be held at Melvin’s Grill in Pontotoc MS.  This will be MaxxSouth Broadband’s first appearance and we’re looking forward to this amazing Comic Book Cake event! We can’t wait to see what the bakers who have been preparing for this spectacular event brings for us to taste and see! The event is hosted by BOND Small Business Group which is also out of Pontotoc MS.  Organizer & CEO of BOND Small Business Group Jessica Starks stated “We are thrilled to be able to bring back the Pontotoc Food Fight in 2022 since we’ve had to cancel due to COVID breakouts over the past two years.  We have some extremely talented bakers registered this year and we can’t wait to see what they create this year!”
