Ribfest was going strong on Sunday afternoon despite opening up a little late due to stormy weather. The festival opened at about 1:45 p.m. Sunday, said Mark Wright, chair of Ribfest 2012.
Rough weather has been a slight issue for the festival, with thunderstorms causing officials to close the festival a little early on Friday night and cutting short the Steve Miller concert, but Wright said that overall, Ribfest was off to a great start.
Attendance is great and Saturday night about 28,000 people were roaming the grounds at , Wright said.
Despite the hot temperatures, only about two people were treated for heat-related issues, Wright said. Police and emergency management officials at Ribfest also agreed that things were going well. Police patrolling the park said overall people were behaving and emergency management officials said those who sought assistance needed help for very minor things.
Lines for the ribs were long and Armadillo’s named the No. 1 ribs this year, had a long line of customers waiting Sunday.
Ribfest continues through July 3. The Ribfest fireworks program will be held this year on July 3.
