Rhythm & Ribs event draws crowd to downtown Albion

Rhythm & Ribs contestant prepares for the big meal.Despite some of the hottest weather of the summer, Albion’s fourth annual Rhythm & Ribs attracted nearly 900 people last Saturday, Aug. 24.
The day’s main event was the grilling competition, with a total of 30 teams competing this year.
Grillers again arrived early to begin cooking on Fourth Street, competing for a total purse of $2,200 in the “best ribs” and “people’s choice” categories.
Two bands provided live music, and “life-size beer pong” was a popular activity.
Special guest judges were former Nebraska softball pitcher Ashley Hagemann and Miss Rodeo Nebraska Samantha Chytka.
