Here is what we are getting from the front lines at Rib Fest – taking place at the Burlington Centre (formerly the Mall).

Just back from Rib Fest (they let us put up some signage to advertise Terry Fox event), reports Craig Gardner who is heading up the 2020 Terry Fox Run.  He faces the same problem the Rotary was up against – their events were cancelled and everyone had to scramble to come up with an alternative.

“People started showing up at 9 for RIBS – by time I left shortly after 11 am the lineup was getting rather large. Looks like a great day for Rotary.

“Everything is nicely laid out easy to navigate and will hold lots of cars. Appears to be much better lay out than July 1.

Another Halton resident sent us a note about her visit to the “Valhalla of Ribs” adding – I attended at about 11:10 by which time 500 or 600 had already preceded me.

The volunteers do an excellent job of answering questions and keeping the long snaking lines of vehicles moving toward the Valhalla of ribs.

I wanted to get try ribs from two vendors but that’s impossible with the current, but necessary, setup.  And how to choose the ribs you want to try?

Advice to me, which I followed, was to choose the shortest line.

The entrance is off Fairview – lots of signage – you can’t miss it.
