BBQ Festival on the Neuse one month away

KINSTON, NC (WITN) We are just one month away from the 37th annual BBQ Festival on the Neuse and WITN is once again a proud sponsor.

The event will be held on May 4th and 5th in downtown Kinston and will be bigger and better this year, according to organizers.

The main event will be the cooking contest that will be judged on showmanship and taste.

There will be a Social House vodka garden with live entertainment and an antique tractor show, along with hay rides, amusement rides, a fun run and tours.

If you want to join the BBQ cooking contest, there's still time to register your team.

On Saturday Pride of Kinston will be hosting a pickers market and previous winners will be cooking BBQ for a best of the best, in which the public can buy.
