2014 Rib Cook-Off

(23rd Annual Rib Cook-Off Extravaganza)…It has been scheduled for January 25th.

That is one week prior to the Super Bowl. Organizers say this year’s event promises to be the biggest ever. They are preparing for around 15,000 visitors. They have reserved 12,000 pounds of fresh pork ribs, and preparations to make 250 gallons of Old Fashion homemade Ice Cream. Prizes and awards will top $10,000. The top prize of $1,000 will go to the judge’s choice for best BBQ Ribs. Other categories include best side dish and best booth. All net proceeds from the Holtville Athletic Club Rib Cook-Off are earmarked to benefit area youth activity education and athletic groups. The majority of the 600 event volunteers are comprised of area athletic, youth organization, and educational groups and their leaders. Four musical bands will be performing throughout the day of the event. Gates will open at 10:00 am and the event will continue until 2:00 pm, or until all the ribs are gone.
