An American Idol winner will headline this year's Fiery Foods Festival in Pasco.

Lee DeWyze, who claimed the Season 9 title of the Fox show in 2010, will perform in the evening during the Sept. 13 downtown event.

Michael Goins, executive director of the Downtown Pasco Development Authority, announced the news to the Pasco City Council on Monday.

The event will feature traditional hot food contests in the afternoon and be capped by live music later in the day.

The development authority brought the festival back in 2013 after a three-year hiatus. It had more than 40 vendors and sponsors, while 35 volunteers helped out.
