July is fast approaching and with it, comes the smell of BBQ and of the award-winning, finger-licking-good ribs of the Cornwall Seaway Lions Club Ribfest.
“We’re gearing up for a fabulous event as 2016 marks our fifth anniversary,” said John Lucio, Ribfest Chairperson. “We have a BIG celebration in mind this year, starting with great entertainment, combined with our traditional midway, the beer garden and, of course, ribs galore! We’re also providing a FREE kids zone so little ones can enjoy the park as much as their folks do.”
The Cornwall Seaway Lions are actively seeking sponsors for this major summer festival. “The sponsors, like our main sponsor Ontarioeast.net, are what make this event the huge success it is,” added Lucio. “They are the main reason we can inject so much money back into the community. They are the back bone of Ribfest.”
The festival is expanding to 4 days, running from Thursday July 21 to Sunday July 24. Here is the official Line Up.
