Add barbecue to your Gulf Shores vacation at the BBQ & Blues Cook Off
The Gulf Coast's legendary seafood is a draw for many people who rent Gulf Shores condos or beach houses. But if you're looking for the spicy flavor of barbecue, you can also count on being satisfied by this vacation destination.
Although it's common for folks to fire up their own grills throughout the year, March is an ideal time for barbecue lovers to head to this warm Alabama locale to enjoy the annual BBQ & Blues Cook-Off held in Foley.
Grill masters and blues aficionados alike may want to set out from their Gulf Shores vacation rentals and head up to Foley for the day for this tasty event. Teams compete for prizes in several categories at this finger-lickin' good event - whether their concoction has the "Best 'Q'," "Best Sauce," or "Anything 'Butt'."
If you have love to cook and you have a particularly delicious barbecue recipe that everyone raves about, form your own team and enter the contest! Groups of friends and coworkers often join together to show off their personal traditions or represent their companies.
In addition to the tasty eats, you can enjoy live blues music and the fresh spring air at downtown Foley's Heritage Park. While the event is a guaranteed great time for grill and barbecue enthusiasts, there's something for every member of the family. Several kids' activities are available to keep the little ones involved in the festivities, and there's a live auction. Meyer Vacation Rentals supports the event, donating the top prize at the auction: three nights in a three-bedroom Gulf Shores condo. You can also win gift certificates to local restaurants and businesses.
All the proceeds from this ticketed event go to support the South Baldwin Chamber Foundation and its many programs in the community, including seven surrounding communities. The spicy-sweet flavor of barbecue never tastes so good as when it also helps non-profit organizations!
Foley is just a 20-minute drive from Gulf Shores beach house rentals, so add this event to your vacation plans when you visit the region in March!
