It was another beautiful sunny day that greeted thousands of residents and visitors from as far away as Saskatchewan and Alberta this past Saturday. The 3rd annual Rock’n Ribs Music and Ribs Festival was another resounding success. What’s become a highlight of West Nipissing’s Summer featured a great variety of performers including headliners from Classic Rock, to Indie Folk Rock, Blues and finishing with the high energy rock of Ascot Royals.

Congratulations to Swampthang Derrick for winning first place in the amateur ribbing competition, 2nd place went to the team of Bro Ribs, and  3rd place to the team from Royal Lepage.

Angus McLeod’s name was drawn from the 1000 tickets sold for the Little NHL Fundraiser, he won himself $10000.00. Another special moment was when the children of last year’s winning “Ribbed For Your Pleasure” ribbing team collected $400 for Ronald McDonald House Charities then the crowd and sponsors added another $600 for a total of $1000.00.
