Your team of amateur BBQ enthusiasts can compete for category trophies and the Grand Champion team will take home the $250 cash prize, sponsored by Martin's IGA! They've also added a Corporate Challenge to the event on Friday night. You can also expect great music, food and plenty of beverages. On Friday night, they are bringing back the popular Kilborn Alley Blues band, Super Deluxe and Ultrasonic.
