The eighth annual Daybreak Rotary Ribfest fed thousands on the weekend, while raising much-needed funds for a host of community groups.
Western Canada’s largest rib festival once again welcomed six Canadian ribbers — Boss Hog’s and Gator BBQ from Ontario, House of Q and Smoke and Bones BBQ from B.C., Misty Mountain BBQ from Alberta, and Prairie Smoke and Spice from Saskatchewan.
The thousands of attendees chowed down on ribs, enjoyed cold beverages, had some fun in the kids’ zone and listened to a variety of bands on the Rotary Bandshell stage.
Since its inception in 2012 Ribfest has helped raise more than $500,000 for a variety of Kamloops organizations, including Literacy Kamloops, Boys & Girls Club of Kamloops Power Start Breakfast Program, Breakfast for Babies in support of the Kamloops Food Bank, Kamloops Sexual Assault Counselling Centre, Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice House and the YMCA/YWCA Strong Kids Program.
KTW photographer Allen Douglas dropped by and managed to get these shots without any barbecue sauce dripping on to his lens.
