The occasion ran from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in a celebration of food and entertainment. The Greater Marco Family YMCA sponsored the event.

The annual Taste of Marco on Sunday supported the Greater Marco Family YMCA with a daylong celebration of food and fun.

In its 23rd year, Taste of Marco at The Esplanade, 760 N. Collier Blvd., offered the public a chance to sample gourmet and down-home goods, all prepared by chefs from Marco Island restaurants.

The annual benefit included a waiter/waitress obstacle-course race and a performance by the Greg Miller Ban. A kiddie area provided sand art, bounce house and climbing walls for children.
