It's only five minutes away...

Over the past 25 years, Canada's Largest Ribfest has become a Labour Day
weekend tradition here. We made sure we came home in time to enjoy it.
In 2015, Ribfest broke attendance records with over 195,000 in attendance,
over 160,000 lbs of ribs sold and over $3 million dollars has been raised for
the community over the course of the event. There's also corn on the cob,
coleslaw, fries, and of course, beer and pop. Not a dieters day on the lake.
All plates, utensils and carry-out containers are ALL recyclable and they have
huge containers to collect the garbage.
Police are on hand to ensure a happy, peaceful time for everyone.
We buy four strips from different venders and I freeze three for future meals.
It's 8 am. and already starting to smell like Ribs on the Barby.
It's only five minutes away... and we go when it's not too busy.
