Feel the rhythm, taste the ribs
There’s a reason for all the food-oriented events that keep popping up on our community calendar: Sacramentans love to eat. In order to keep the locals happy, the folks at Raley Field are hosting the Rhythm & Ribs festival. This finger-lickin’-good festival will feature more than 10 “ribbers” battling it out in the rib cook-off. As if mouthwatering ribs weren’t enough, there also will be musical performances by 21 bands, including Mumbo Gumbo, the Cheeseballs and Las Pesadillas. Tickets for the event are $5, but bring extra cash because the ribs will be sold separately. Your three-day food fest is scheduled for Friday from 5 p.m. until 10:30 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. until 10:30 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. Put on your bib, grab your hand wipes and head to 400 Ballpark Drive in West Sacramento. Call (916) 376-4676 for more information.
