12th annual Tilden Rib Fest set for Saturday

TILDEN - The 12th annual Tilden Rib Fest will be held Saturday to raise funds for Tilden Legion Post 170.  Spokesman Larry Henseleit says 83 grillers competed last year, and he expects that many or more for Saturday’s competition. Henseleit says the Legion buys all of the ribs – about 2300 lbs. – for the grillers.  Henseleit says the event has turned into an all day eating fest – with breakfast beginning at 9 and hors d’oerves from 11 to about 2. Tickets cost $10 each, and allow you to visit with the grillers and sample their offerings all day. Ribs are served beginning at 5 p.m. and a rib dinner includes beans, chips and bread.  Anyone interested in grilling is asked to contact the Tilden Legion before Friday evening.
