What says Labor Day Weekend better than ribs and live music?
The 11th Annual Solid Gold Rib Fest will be held at the Muskingum County Fair Grounds over the weekend. You can't have a rib festival without a little friendly competition? The 16 vendors will be competing in a rib cook-off on saturday. CEO of the Minority Business Resource Network, Earnest Bynum, is pretty excited about this years judges.
"We'll have a rib contest Saturday, and the ribs will be judged by the Chief of Police, the Sheriff and the Commander of the Highway Patrol."
While the event is free, the Minority Business Resource Network will be raising funds through its beer booth. So they ask you to come out, have a drink and enjoy some delicious ribs and great music.
"There'll be plenty of ribs, we'll have music. We've got 10 different bands coming and starting at 5:00 Friday."
The event will start at 5:00 on Friday and at 4:00 on Saturday and run till midnight both nights.
