Gearing up for its seventh smoky installment, the Stokin' The Fire BBQ Festival is an annual barbecue competition set to a live soundtrack. Each year, barbecue from local teams competes for the tummies of the populous in the People's Choice competition, as well as for the taste buds of designated judges in various categories. Cast-iron trophies and prize money are bestowed upon the best burner in each category, and live music from The Rhythms, New Grass Troubadours, and Culture Dred accompanies the sound of sizzling meats. While adults enjoy the saucy wit of this summer's celebrity guest, Wendy Williams of The Wendy Williams Show, pintsize participants can enjoy the Kids’ Zone, which features games, crafts, and a palpable absence of pigs playing lawn darts.
