Live music, a children's play area, and of course, ribs galore are on this year's Ribfest menu.
The third annual festival is set to take place on Labour Day weekend, from Sept. 3 to 5, in the heart of the city.
Maureen Luoma, executive director of Downtown Sudbury, said she hopes “more of the same” good things will happen at this year's festival.
Last year, 12,400 pounds of ribs were served, along with 1,320 chickens and 730 pounds of coleslaw.
Luoma said Ribfest is a popular event for families.
“One of the things we've liked with this event is all ages come out,” she said. “It's a family event — a community event. That's why we strengthened some of the family components as well, and that's why there's no admission.”
This year, the travelling Nintendo Neighbourhood Tour will be set up at Ribfest on Sept. 4 and 5, along with inflatable fun zones for the young and young-at-heart.
A car and motorcycle show
will also be set up, and 27 live music performances are scheduled to take the stage too. READ ON
