This year’s Mississauga Rotary Ribfest was even better than the inaugural one last year at the then newly-opened Celebration Square.
Under a sunny blue sky with a few puffy clouds and with a gentle breeze keeping us cool, myself and a team of colleagues did Friday afternoon lunch at the Ribfest.
This year we saw many more rib/pulled pork participants offering numerous options. Missing was the Dyson tent (maybe it was hidden away) – we could have used their handy washing stations. The drive back to the office was a slightly sticky one. Luckily the ribs were finger-licking good.
I tried the pork ribs from the Gator Company – great sauce, very fatty ribs. I like their sign: Keep Calm and Gator On.
Note: Best time to visit is just at about lunch hour, 11:50 a.m. to get your ribs and snag a table. After 1:00 p.m. space gets tight and you need to troll around to get a space if you are coming with a larger crowd.
Here are a few photos of our Rib-o-licious time:
I’ll be back next year with the crew… and later this summer, Frank and I are planning on attending Canada’s Largest Ribfest in Burlington at Spencer Smith Park (Aug. 31 to Sept. 3, 2012).
