Town BBQ

 

RESIDENTS ARE INVITED TO ATTEND THE 24TH ANNUAL (60TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION) TOWN BBQ
ON SUNDAY, APRIL 2, 2017

11:00 AM ~ 2:30 PM

 

Mayor Shalhoub and his Smokin’ Gator BBQ “pit crew” will be preparing mouth-watering pulled pork and barbecue chicken. We are excited to bring back the fired catfish as it seems to be a fan favorite. Councilman Lewis' irresistible juicy hot dogs will be served!  We start serving food at 11:30 AM and continue until the food runs out so be sure to come early.

The 13th Annual Ron Weber Memorial Antique Car Contest will take place during the BBQ festivities.  Residents can view the antique cars that will be on display and vote for the vehicle of their choice.  One winner will be chosen to receive a trophy donated by GONZ Collision. Make sure to cast your vote because the winning car will be featured in the Town’s annual “Holidays in Paradise” parade that will be held on December 2, 2017.

We also will be accepting baked goods this year, please contact Pat Conte at (561) 324-8050 to arrange for your donation.
