LX3 Diaries #475: Scenes from a Ribfest, Guelph 2012

What do you get when you have the hot summer sun (and acres of exposed flesh), a classic/vintage car show, live country music, a midway, a staff of volunteers, and ribs, ribs, ribs? Why a ribfest, of course!
A ribfest is a type of food festival that occurs throughout the United States and Canada. The size of each ribfest is often measured by the number of travelling professional "rib teams" which sell food and compete at the events.
A rib ffestival generally has multiple food vendors selling barbecue beef or pork ribs, puled pork sandwiches, chicken, coleslaw, baked beans, and other food choices.The vendors usually compete against one another for top spot in several categories including: Best Ribs, Best Sauce, Best Pulled Pork, and the People's Choice Award. (from Wikipedia)
Net proceeds from the three-day event went to local charities.
Chris, from the Boss Hog Team, brushes on the key to  winning the people's vote: the sauce!
The teams!
The food and beer tents...
And of course, all that food has to end up somewhere...

The arcades...
And what was I thinking? I should have taken pics of the vintage cars, the giant stage (country music), the rides, the people...
