Paisley Pig, Famous Daves top choices at VFW Rib Fest

• May 29, 2018 at 11:00 AM

The results of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2326 14th Annual Rib Fest are in.

Officials  said the weather cooperated, making the event an all-around success. From the smell of BBQ ribs cooking to the sounds of the bands, to the kid’s tent “it was fun for all.” First Street between Washington and Columbus was blocked off for the annual two-day event held over the Memorial Day weekend.

This year’s event played host to nine rib vendors and the money raised goes towards the local veteran’s charities and the Ward-Goff Scholarship.

The scholarship is available only to the children or grandchildren of active military personnel or honorably discharged military veterans of any branch of the United States military. It is available to Tri-Cities residents who are current high school seniors at Grand Haven, Spring Lake, Muskegon Catholic or Western Michigan Christian High School. Financial need is a top priority. Applicants must have at least a 3.0 GPA.
