Temperatures in the upper 80′s, a slight breeze and clear blue skies made a perfect draw for today’s Ribfest, hosted by the Northcenter Chamber of Commerce. Crowds were large enough that by this afternoon, Northcenter Chamber leadership whispered the words “record attendance”, then immediately cautioned against a jinx.

Last year’s Ribfest attracted over 55,000 people in three days and sold over 26,000 slabs of ribs.

Despite the number of people at the fest lines for food were relatively short and there were still plenty of places to sit on side streets.
