Rehoboth Beach — DNREC’s Division of Parks & Recreation will host the 5th annual “Boo-B-Que By the Sea,” a barbecue cook-off competition and family festival, on Friday Oct. 18 at Delaware Seashore State Park.
This year’s event will take place at the South Inlet Campground starting at 6 p.m. Free parking is available at the South Inlet Day Area during the event. The event features a wide variety of family-friendly activities. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Delaware Children in Nature Endowment Fund, which affords young people outdoor recreational opportunities across the state.
From 6-10 p.m. Oct. 18, the public can join the Kansas City Barbecue Society competitors (KCBS) for a spooky evening, with trick-or-treating, and an opportunity for visitors to sample and select the “people’s choice award” winners for chicken wings. Craft beers will also be available on tap for adults hosted by La Vida Hospitality. Ocean 98 radio’s DJ Magellan will be live onsite for the festivities.
KCBS is a competitive cooking organization and the world’s largest non-profit group of barbecue and grilling enthusiasts, with more than 20,000 members worldwide. Every year, KCBS sanctions more than 450 barbeque contests worldwide, with the mission of recognizing BBQ as “America’s Cuisine,” and “to celebrate, teach, preserve and promote barbeque as a culinary technique, sport, and art form.”
