Getcha Sticky Icky on at RIBFEST 2009!
Did you know that people who specialize in cooking ribs are called Ribbers? Well, you do now! This weekend at Homestead Air Reserve Park will be the site for Ribfest 2009. This year's event features a dozen Ribbers rubbin', smokin', and saucin' down some serious ribbage to determine who's ribs will stick with the title of Best in Show.
In addition to glorious mounds of ribs to scarf down, there are family games, hay rides, and other activities. There will also be some music acts that some may have heard of. On Saturday, Joan Jett & the BlackHearts take the stage after a set by Blue Oyster Cult! Holy 80's! Sunday goes country with Tracy Lawrence and Chuck Wicks.
Tickets are $15 with a parking fee of $5 per car. Not bad. The event takes place on Saturday from 11am to 10pm and Sunday from 11am to 6pm, so be sure to carve out a little time this weekend to check it out. With the weather poised to be perfect, its a can't miss.
