BeltLandia Weekender: August 12th – 14th, 2016

BBQ FestivalWith the Olympics on, I find myself wondering if there could possibly be anything else to do but watch the sporting events. However, it has been brought to my attention that not everyone watches the Olympics – who knew?

If you find yourself as one of those that does not self-identify as an avid Olympics viewer, then I bet the list of events below might provide you with ample entertainment for the weekend. Regardless of what you choose, there will not be a shortage of barbecue.

  1. OK, we’re admittedly stretching the boundaries of BeltLandia in all directions with this weekender. We’ll just subtitle this entry: Fun in the sun inside the perimeter. No harm, no foul, right?
