NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa A full day of music and meat or officially, the 2014 North Liberty Blues and Barbecue a saucy Saturday at Centennial Park on the city’s west side close to North Bend Elementary.
The day started with a 5-K in the sticky air so the afternoon and evening replenishment of ribs and other delicacies can balance out the sweat from earlier.
This is also a free event.
Fabulous. We came right at the beginning at noon because we like BF Burt so much. He was playing with his band Big Medicine, said Bonnie Winslow-Garvin of North Liberty.
Of course, while the event is free the glory of a championship-winning barbecue product remains forever.
Judging wrapped up, just before the storms came, cutting the 2014 event short before the planned 10 p-m closing time.
