Good old-fashioned fun is in store for everyone attending the eighth annual Rhythm & Ribs in downtown Albion this Saturday, Aug. 26.

Grillers are being registered now for the Rhythm & Ribs contest, which features a $2,200 purse. About 30 teams are expected, and they will be arriving early in the morning to set up.

Registrations are also open for the life-sized beer pong and cornhole tournaments that will begin at 10 a.m. that morning. To sign up, call the Albion Chamber of Commerce, 402-395-6012, or Barb Krohn, 402-395-6947 or 402-741-2502.

“We have a goal of getting 1,000 people downtown for Rhythm & Ribs for at least a portion of the day’s events,” said Albion Chamber President Barb Krohn. “This is always a fun day with music, food and plenty of activities.”
