Playing With Fire

The Brampton Rib’n’Roll is the first stop in the season’s Rotary Ribfest schedule for 2015 and people come out to downtown’s Gage Park in droves to lineup for charcoal seasoned and barbeque sauced ribs.

Music is also a large part of the weekend as a number of bands take to the stage to entertain, including Peterborough-born Elyse Saunders, below, who showcased her country music style with her five piece band backing her up.

Saunders has been a contender for CMAO’s Female Artist of the Year in 2013 and 2014 and her current single ‘Just Like Mama’ is in radio rotation on stations from Canada to Japan, The Netherlands and Spain.

Trasias and his local catering company have been cooking ribs every year at the Ribfest – about 1500 for the weekend – but decided this year to forego the ribs in favour of standard hamburger, hotdog, and sausage fare. (I know I was disappointed because I think P&P’s ribs are the best on the block!)
For those that did cook ribs, wearing goggles was a necessity to keep the smoke out of one’s eyes, below.
