      I plan on being there to be one of the KCBS certified judges for the bbq event. I don't know about the rest of it although I do like the Fabulous Thunderbirds a lot. I don't know what food will be available on Saturday, I get my bbq on Sunday.

        Unfortunately my table of judges did not get to taste any of the winners, it was a sad day in Bedford at my table, but here are the winners. #'s 1 and 3 are from Oklahoma and #2 is from Wichita, KS. THere were 40 teams for a first time event, that was a darn good showing for the cook teams. I have a lot of respect for them. Now tomorrow I will make a run up to Sperry, OK for lunch at Buffalo BBQ. It is worth my trip.

                Overall it was fun. Some good music, some fun things for the kids to do, and with the addition of the bbq, that was my favorite. I really liked the Tejas Brothers. One suggestion for next year, add a misting tent.

      This looks pretty good. Is this the first time for this festival?

        I read on one of the web-links that Bedford was reviving this event, but I have no knowledge of any previous. I'd like to go, but I'll be out of town, so if anyone does venture out this way, I hope to read about it.

          I have been years ago, like maybe 7 or 8 years ago. It was just 'ok' then. Some odd ball vendors, the area is flat and basically a field, so not attractive venue. The vendors were pretty hokey and redneck. The music was ok I suppose.

          Again, this has been a few years back, they may have upgraded.
