If you are in the South (even if just passing through), you simply must immerse yourself in two of the best things about the region: BBQ and the blues. It’s easier than you think—just attend the 3rd Annual Foley BBQ and Blues Cookoff!
Saturday, March 19, 2011, will be jammed full of dripping, lip-smacking, wonderful versions of barbecue recipes brought to life. Cookoff entries include more than fifteen backyard hobbyists and veteran chefs, but the dishes will all be so incredibly tasty that it won’t matter which is which. But heed this warning: The BBQ may not last throughout the entire day, so get there early enough to ensure your tastebuds get what they are craving!
The perfect musical complement to BBQ is good ol’ Southern blues. You’ll likely be disappointed to hear a group’s musical segment come to a close, but very soon, another group will pick up and pull you in again. Plan now to catch each of these outstanding performances:
10–noon Mud Bucket
Noon–2 Soul Monkey
2–4 Mark Kaul and the GC BarStars
4–6 Johnny No
Other aspects of the day include children’s activities, a silent auction, and drawings that allow all ticket holders an opportunity to win terrific prizes such as vacations, diamond jewelry, gift cards and more.
This gated, ticketed event is just $10 (ages 10 and under are free). Your support enables the South Baldwin Chamber Foundation to continue and expand the many educational programs they offer throughout the community.
We hope to see you at Foley’s Heritage Park (Hwys. 98 & 59) between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 19. BBQ for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks, plus some of the South’s best music, plus amusements for the kids, too—and on what is expected to be a perfect-weather day. What more could you ask for?
