Rib-Fest Etobicoke

NewtonSquare Jun 24, 2009 07:42 AM

If anyone was wondering, it is business as usual here in Etobicoke...........no garbage strike. The temporary fences are up, some of the rides are assembled, and plenty of 40 YD. bins in place to contain all that garbage that will be produced again, as in previous years. So it looks like a green light for the affair this weekend.

Yesterday management staff cleaned up all the garbage in my favorite park and it pretty well looks normal this AM. Just an update in case anyone is interested.

No new news on their site: http://torontoribfest.com/?m=200906

          Noon to 1PM most stuff is ready to roll, but could be iffy. We normally wait until around 4 PM to sample any food. Usually OK by then. Can easily walk over, so can go home for a while if it looks like more time is needed.
