For the second year in a row, Big Brothers Big Sisters of West Island will host a family friendly Rib Fest! A three-day family fun event filled with delicious food, fantastic live entertainment, and plenty of games for the kids. More than 35,000 people came out last year, to try slow roasted ribs from six different award-winning rib vendors from as far away as Las Vegas, Alabama and Ontario.
Foodies will be delighted by some of the other unusual treats available such as fried Mars bars, cornbread, grill-roasted corn, homemade lemonade and a whole potato cut like a spring and fried.
Inflatable children’s games will be plentiful and cost $5 for a bracelet that allow access to the children’s area for the entire day. Harley Davidson Montreal will be bringing their Jumpstart for people to get a motorcycle experience. And don’t forget to check out DesMeules Chrysler’s BlackOps!
Proceeds from the Montreal RibFest will support the Big Brothers Big Sisters Mentoring programs that are offered to the community at no charge. The pet free event will take place at Pierrefonds-Roxboro Borough Hall.
