There will also be live music and entertainment throughout the day, from local performers such as The Atomic Trousers, Staff Infection, The Elderly Brothers, Chris Tarantino, and the Competition Team from the Dance On studio.  The event is also hosting a BBQ contest, in conjunction with the New England BBQ society (www.nebs.org), with competitors trying to make the best ribs and wings, as scored by certified BBQ judges, for cash prizes and to earn points in the Team of the Year series standings.  This part of the event is for public observation only.
