Naperville RibfestEvery year, 4th of July weekend reminds me that summer fun is here and what better way to kick it off then with Naperville's Ribfest. An annual event for nearly 15 years that provides  food and musical enjoyment for all.

Maria: RIBFEST?!?! You're kidding! I love ribs. Another GREAT reason for me to visit Naperville! (I suppose now I have to wait a year...) We marched in two parades and had good ol' Wisconsin BRATS. The 4th was awesome; thanks for the local flavor!   : )

I'm sorry I just found this post. I think I need to find another moderator for the Things to Do/Places to Visit group. Soo, while it's a month too late, I just wanted to say this sounds like fun. And lots of great information about the festivities.  =)
