Time to break out the ole barbeque grills and enjoy the great tastes of a BBQ! Speaking of which it is a great time to mention the I LOVE BBQ FESTIVAL held over the fourth of July weekend. OHHHH!!! LA LA!! MADAME CUISINE grilling up some great flavors for you on my grill! Also, would like to mention about the festival of great food that will be grilled up in Lake Placid. This festival will be held July 2nd through the 4th. (I cannot wait to taste all this great food….DELICIOUS!!). What is this festival all about? Well, let me tell you!
This festival will be featuring music, kid’s rides, food demonstrations and a professional barbecue competiton sanctioned by Kansas City Barbecue Society! This competition brings in some of the best culinary BBQ talents in the nation. Including our very own Madame Cuisine! What makes it even better is that the money raised by this event helps to fund the SHIPMAN YOUTH CENTER which is a local recreation center for Lake Placid’s Youth.
After you fill your belly on some great food. Why not head over to the Horseshow Grounds where some great competition is taking place. THE LAKE PLACID HORSESHOW is taking place from today through the 4th of July. See Equestrians from all over the world competing for large cash prizes. It is a show not to miss. Then on the 4th of July line up on Main street for the annual 4th of July Parade around 6pm in the evening. Who knows you may even see Santa Claus from the North Pole? (Yes, he does visit in the summer and loves July 4th). Then at dusk sit down at our beach or at the public beach on Mirror Lake to see the sky light up. Children and adults alike will see a grand display of fireworks set to music to cap off a great 4th of July 2010.
So, what are you waiting for head to LP this 4th of July weekend. Your family will thank you for years to come. Well, talking about all this food has made me hungry to fire up the grill! Have a great Summer season everyone!!!!
