On Wednesday, May 17 through Saturday, May 20, head over to Tom Lee Park for America’s most prestigious barbecue competition. Every year, hundreds of teams compete for over $111,000 in prizes and supreme bragging rights. Teams adorn their areas with elaborate decoration, trophies attesting to their boasting rights, and as one can imagine, clever and creative team names. While grilling is the main theme, the contest wouldn’t be complete without the “Ms. Piggie Idol” competition where the finest swine tests their vocal skills, and grown men dress in tutus and snouts and women kick their heels (hooves) up. There is also a t-shirt competition as well as a best booth contest. Purchase tickets online: www.ticketfly.com
