Vicki Shivers - Tuesday, May 10, 2011

The wonderful smells of hickory stoked fires, slow cooked ribs and barbequed pulled pork will fill the Island air as the Hilton Head Kiwanis Club hosts the premiere BBQ event of the year at their annual “Rib Burn-Off.” 

This family friendly event will be held on May 14th at the Coastal Discovery Museum’s Honey Horn Plantation and the fields will be packed with BBQ lovers from all over the area to join the local Kiwanis Clubs to enjoy some down home music, enjoy some of the South’s best BBQ and raise funds for local children’s charities.The grills and smokers will get fired up the night before the event, as restaurants and area amateurs compete for trophy’s and another year’s bragging rights.
Kids will love the inflatable castles and slides in the children’s area, and the Sheriff’s Department and Fire Department will be on hand to provide equipment and educational displays for them to enjoy.

Tickets are $15 (children 12 and under are free) and can be purchased at Burkes Pharmacy on the Island (843) 681-2622 or visit for more info.
