    I was really disappointed in this event after reading all the hype. Am I the only one who didn’t realize that the BBQ wouldn’t be for the public to buy? We went for dinner on Saturday…got to the park around 4pm and they were already awarding the prizes. I guess it doesn’t matter that the event closed two hours earlier than posted on Saturday since we couldn’t eat there anyway.
