This post below documents my experience on June 7, 2014 when it took place at the Parmatown Mall Parking Lot.

For the first time ever, I headed to the Parmatown Mall…

…but it wasn’t for pants.

Instead, it was for a festival called the Rib N Rock Cook Off.

Utilizing some of the parking lot…

…the festival transformed the asphalt into a carnival wonderland…

…with plenty of rides…

…games…

…and fried fair food.

There were also some vendors in this area…

…but they mostly consisted of services for windows, gutters and tubs.

The other half of the festival consisted of the main grounds…

…where festival goers could find beer…

…advertised ethnic specialties from Poland…

…Italy…

…and Greece…

…and, of course, ribs…

lots of ribs – all doing their best to lure people via huge signs…

…and an assortment of trophies.

But even those luring techniques couldn’t keep the visitors from the entertainment…

…where the festival is said to really excel year after year (Shockwave).
