The Beach, Boogie & BBQ Festival is this Labor Day weekend

Like it or not, Labor Day weekend marks the official end of the summer season.  The Beach, Boogie & BBQ Festival at Grand Park at Market Common will be a fantastic way to spend it!

This barbeque competition, featuring three categories, has turned into a three-day festival filled with music, family-friendly activities, craft vendors, and, of course, food!  Sample entries from contestants each day.

Enjoy musical performances by Tru Sol, The Tams, Platinum, Envision, Atlantic Groove, Jim Quick & the Coastline, Josh Gracin, Cortez & The Killers Blues Band, Mark Roberts & Breeze, and the Necessary Band.  Meet BRAVO TV's 'Top Chef: All-Stars' Winner Richard Blais and watch as adults stuff themselves during the Wing-A-Palooza Wing "Eat Off" Contest and the watermelon eating contest for children.  There will also be boat rides and wakeboard demonstrations throughout the festival.
