It's time for Riverfest again, when the city is full to bursting with outdoor parties, music and of course, the highlight, the International BBQ Competition. Every May Bank Holiday Weekend Limerick embraces the River Fest, an event that attracts people from all over the country to come to the city and experience a carnival of events including Dragon Boating, Music Gigs and, of course, the main attraction the World BBQ Cook-Off, River Feast in association with the Irish BBQ Association, a non-profit organisation. This unique event incorporates teams from every corner of the world. Growing from strength to strength each year this culinary competition has made its mark as being the worlds largest international BBQ cook-off.
I might be judging and they need judges people. So e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested, happy foodie lovers need only apply. I got tickets to see the Zutons at Dolan's Marquee on Saturday night and hope to take it the curragh racing on the Shannon too.
Big thanks to Limerick Now Magazine who put on an amazing first birthday party at the Dagdha Dance Group Church last night. It was all red carpet, pink champagne, dancers and acrobats and cocktails. After mingling with the best dressed and funkiest people in town, from fire eaters to film-makers, we were all transported on a coach to the VIP area of Trinity Rooms, don't you just love going in and out past that red rope.....
