Events Set For Britton
Britton’s Harvest Days was a victim of the COVID-19 pandemic, but area residents will still have an opportunity to participate in several events that have previously been a part of the city celebration this Saturday.
A Rib Cook-Off, a car show, and free music from the Union Cattle Band are scheduled for the day.
The Rib Cook-Off had 11 teams signed up by Monday afternoon and more are welcome. The event will be used as a fundraiser for Marshall County 4-H Youth Archery. Teams will begin cooking ribs in the vacant lot just south of the Strand Theatre about 8 a.m. and ribs will be for sale to the public for $1 each beginning at 5 p.m. until gone.
Judges will pick the top three ribs in the non-sanctioned event and the public will vote for a People’s Choice selection. Anyone wishing to sign up or wanting more information may contact Joe Lang at 605-216-0050.
“People are more than welcome to come down and walk around so they know what they are getting hungry for come 5 p.m.,” said Lang.
A car show is planned on Main Street from 4-8 p.m. and is free to all participants. Homemade trophies will be awarded to class winners and a People’s Choice Award will be given.
“We just want people from around the area to stop in and show off their car, have some food, and listen to some good music,” said car show organizer Bob Ingvalson who named the event, “Rage Against Rona.” We’re just trying to help out the community and have a good time.”
Ingvalson stressed that the show will accept projects.
“It doesn’t have to be pretty and can be rusty and old. We just want people to show up with whatever they want.”
The Union Cattle Band will perform on Main Street from 4-8 p.m. There will be no admission charge. Snapper’s Dry Bean also plans to have a beer garden on Main from noon-8 a.m.
