Special Events

Boats, Bands & Bar-B-Que

When: June 10-11 2011

In this era of rampant child obesity, it's good to know there's still a place for a kids' ice-cream eating contest. That place is Pueblo's Riverwalk (101 S. Union Ave., Pueblo), where Boats, Bands and Bar-B-Que unfolds this weekend. Fearless tykes (and adults) will comp-eat in the ice cream category at 7:30 tonight (a half-hour after similar chicken-wing eating contests), but the rest of us can enjoy vendors aplenty, a couple tasting competitions and the Overton Road band on the main stage. Oh, and a "Kids Q," where the little ones cook up some nice red meat. (Damn, they do get 'em started early, don't they?) Admission's $3 or less, and for a full event schedule — tomorrow's actually the big day — you can see puebloharp.com. — Kirk Woundy
