UP IN SMOKE BBQ BASH
July 26 and 27, 2013
Great food, great fun and great music - It's the Up in Smoke BBQ Bash in East Park, July 26 & 27. Friday night brings more than great music, it's the Hy-Vee Chili Contest. Friday and Saturday walk around and see how the great barbecue pitmasters do it, including last year's Grand Champion, Iowa's Smokey D's and past winners of the KC Royal World Series of BBQ. Listen to the music. There is NO admittance charge.
