Twin City RibFest dodges rain
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.– While many parts of the Piedmont saw a soggy Friday, hardly any rain at all in downtown Winston-Salem left the organizers of the 9th annual Twin City RibFest perfectly content.
The 9 pit masters competing at the event say the overcast, cooler temperatures are perfect weather for ribs.
By 3 p.m. Friday, attendance had already tripled Thursday’s totals.
“I would take two more days of this absolutely. I think we are very fortunate, very fortunate it could have been a lot worse,” said Andrew Schoffner, RibFest organizer.
Last year, more than 17,000 people attended the downtown event. They are hoping to break that record despite the rain.
If you want to go, RibFest runs through Sunday. Hours are 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
Admission is $7 for adults and kids 12 and younger are free.
