This year’s Ribfest promises to be bigger and better than ever before, to help manage the crowds, the exchange club is introducing new options to get you to the park fast and save you some money starting with family fun time.
“If you come in between 12:00pm to 3:00pm you can get in for 10 dollars at the gate, enjoy your ribs and avoid the crowds. Bring your family, we also have a ten-dollar mega pass for the carnival rides, it’s a great time to get settled and enjoy the park,” said Julie Lichter.
If rides and games aren’t your thing, coming to the park early will guarantee you some cheap eats! Rib dinners can be costly, but this year attendees can enjoy a meal from some of the country’s best rib vendors for nearly half the price!
“Another thing we are offering at that time is 25 dollars for two half slab dinners, so you can come out and enjoy the day before the crowds get crazy, and sit back relax and enjoy Ribfest,” Licther added
The entertainment is always a can’t miss experience, with Styx starting us off and Lynard Skynard wrapping things up, you’re going to want the best seat in the house.
“The best seat in the house is anywhere on the grass. We are having two large screens that you can see from any place in the park,” Marty Walker said.
One of the major issues at Ribfest is parking, with limited spaces downtown, and around the park, organizers of the event offer a free alternative.
“To cut down on the time it takes to park, head to one of our shuttle locations which you can find on our website, ribfest.net. and that will really help you find a place to park, and get to the park and enter,” Julie said.
With all of the entertainment, great food, and excitement it’s easy to forget the real reason behind the fun.
“Its actually the men and women of the exchange club who put this event on and have been for the past 26 years, and have given back 13 million dollars to the community and to the agencies that work to prevent child abuse and domestic violence,” Marty said.
