Ribfest Brings in the Masses

Posted: Updated:
You know the phrase..."you're eyes are bigger than you're stomach". Well, if you spent anytime at Ribfest this week, you'll know that phrase is pretty spot-on. 

Visitors come far and wide to taste the creations of five different award-winning national barbecue vendors. This saucy event was created to draw attention to the downtown area. And participants say despite the rain earlier today, they've had no shortage of customers. 
"In total we've probably gone through forty cases of ribs and we're gonna run out-this is it," says owner of Joe's Rasta, Joe Alexander. "It rained all day so we cut it a little short. But anyway, we've got plenty of other pork."
Proceeds from the Ribfest will go towards making downtown Bismarck even better than it already is.
