A Tasty Way to Help

The BBQ Jamboree is this Saturday. Area barbecue vendors will compete for the best ribs. Guests can sample the entries and vote for their favorite.

The event will also feature a rib-eating contest, music games and a tractor pull.

And your ticket could help needy area residents. If you buy your tickets online, a donation will be made to the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank. Or you could purchase your tickets at the Fredericksburg thrift store for the Salvation Army (2012 Lafayette Blvd), and $3 will go toward that group’s local efforts.

Tickets are $10; kids 6 and under are free.

The event will be Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Fredericksburg Fairgrounds. Click here for details or to order online.
