If you like ribs, then hopefully you didn’t miss this past weekend’s Rib Fest in Defiance.
Downtown Defiance was the place to be for rib-lovers during the city’s fifth annual rib fest on Saturday.
Saturday’s festival was sponsored by The State Bank and General Motors, and featured local food vendors and musical groups.
Winner’s at this year’s rib fest included the Black Lantern — which won the judge’s choice — and the Defiance Fire Department — which was selected as the “people’s choice” winner for the fifth year in a row.
Estimates put the number attending at between 5,000 and 6,000 people.
The weather was great. The Defiance Fire Department says they went through 650 pounds of ribs this year and 75 pounds of pulled pork.
