Because I am picky when it comes to my bar-b-q. It has to be done right! LOL….. Also, are pets going to be allowed into the festival, and if so, can they go to all of the areas, even the food areas? And last but not least, are there going to be any steaks for sale that has been cooked out there? Thanks, that is all…..I have not been since the very first festival, but now that it is free, except for the parking, we will venture out there, if my doggie is welcome to come along too.
