Smoke on the Water Cooks Up Fun

Folks along the Washington waterfront got their fill of some great food and sights at this year's Smoke On the Water Festival.

The 8th Annual Smoke On the Water Festival kicked off Friday in Washington, and made for one great time in the city this weekend. The festival featured 22 pig cookers whipping up bar-b-q, but also had a chili cookoff, great on this chilly day Saturday. But the main goal of the festival was to bring people to Washington, a goal that was accomplished according to organizers.

Festival organizers say they have Mother Nature to thank for this year's great turnout.
