UXBRIDGE: Stock up on napkins, because Ribfest is returning to Elgin Park this weekend for three days of mouth-watering barbeque.
The event runs through the weekend, with gates opening at 11 a.m. on Friday, July 19. On Saturday, the festivities continue from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m., with the event wrapping up on Sunday, from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.
This year, attendees can chose from four great ribbers offering an array of barbeque styles: Horndogs, Crabbys, Texas Rangers and Sticky Fingers.
In addition to the great food, there will also be entertainment throughout the weekend at the Rotary Bandshell, along with a beer garden. As well, Astro Amusements will be on hand to provide activities for children throughout the weekend.
New this year is an out of this world attraction as Ben Davidson brings his mobile observatory to Elgin Park. This interactive display offers interactive education on the solar system and the science behind how the sun affects our weather – from hurricanes to power outages!
Admission to Ribfest is free, and attendees can visit www.uxbridgeribfest.com for more information.
