Canal Winchester resident Jim Currie, who attended the Blues and Ribfest for the first time with his family, enjoys a plate of freshly-grilled ribs under the canopy of a Waterloo Street dining tent as a band played live music nearby on the event’s main stage.
The Sam Shepherd Band entertained visitors returning to Canal Winchester’s Blues and Ribfest on July 30 after a two year hiatus due to the pandemic. The band played the main stage while the heady aroma of ribs drew diners to stands lining the city’s downtown corridor.
While ribs sit on the grill at the front, Colton Rebel slices them apart at the back of the Big Pappy stand to serve to hungry diners during the Blues and Ribfest.
The lines were long for ribs as well as donuts with crowds sometimes waiting more than an hour for a sweet treat from Amish country.
