American Royal 2012

For carnivores and barbecue lovers, the World Series of BBQ is the event to attend. With nearly 500 teams competing and an estimated 70,000 people attending the three day event, there is lots going on! Friday night is the kickoff party and Saturday is the big day with a number of outdoor concerts, cooking demonstrations, fireworks and lots of food. Two very cute activities on Saturday include the Kid’s-Q, a competitive event for those under 15 in which Creekstone Farms supplies the burgers for the younger group and steaks for the older group. The second event is a Kid’s Corral where little ones can ride baby animals and pretend to be a cowboy or cowgirl for the day.
