On this beautiful weekend, I took my 2018 Mazda MX-5 from Palladino Mazda down to Minto Street for this years Downtown Sudbury Rib Fest! On Friday, day 1 of Rib Fest, I had the pleasure of mc’ing for some of Sudbury’s local bands, Identity Crisis, Franco & Tony, P&R Express, Tommy Fyfe and Whiskey River, and Saturday Night Special. These performers we’re amazing and really WOW’d the crowd. I also got to try the amazing ribs, coleslaw and beans from Texas Smokehouse and they really had me going back for more! Throughout the day, I gave away tickets for the Sudbury Wolves exhibition game against the Ottawa 67’s. The stands we’re wild, as most fans we’re of course, cheering for the Wolves! Go Wolves Go!

On Saturday, day 2 of Rib Fest, I started off my afternoon by trying my first ever “blooming onion” and it was delicious! Next, I headed over to the family fun zone with so many things to do! They had horse rides, bouncy castles and much much more. It was definitely the place to be on Labour Day Weekend. There was also great local vendors, selling amazing products. Throughout the day, the live music really had the crowd going! I had the pleasure of watching Pop Machine for the third time this summer, and they continue to amaze me. To end the day, I made my way over to “Tornado Potato” where I had a fantastic tornado potato and you’ll always leave this food vendor with a big smile on your face!

On Sunday, day 3 of Rib Fest, the sun was finally shining! I decided to refresh myself with a blue raspberry lemonade to start off my day. For lunch, our 92.7 ROCK crew went to Jack the Ribber and now we really didn’t know which rib vendor was our favourite. I also got to play a giant game of Jenga, and had a blast! To finish the day off, I headed over to Pappy’s Old Fashion Soda Pop and got an authentic old fashioned mug filled with sweet pop.

Thank you Sudbury and Downtown Sudbury Rib Fest for an amazing weekend! I left there with smoky hair, a full belly, and smiling face, can’t wait for next year!
