It is that time of the year again. The Broyhill Children’s Home seventh annual Barbeque Festival will take place Saturday, May 10, and will be a day of barbeque, a great family atmosphere and providing hope for children and families in crisis.  The festival will begin at 9 a.m. with a 3D Bow Shoot sponsored by Borg Warner Turbo Systems.  Registration for the Bow Shoot is $15 for adults and $10 for children under 12; this includes a barbeque plate and drink after the shoot. There are lots of door prizes and awards to win. All targets will be auctioned off at the end of the day. Casual registration will take place at noon Friday, May 9.  For more information about the Bow Shoot, call Chat at 400-1988.

The festival will also include a Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show hosted by Sunset Cruisers of Waynesville from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  All makes and models are welcome with trophies given to the top 15 finishers along with a Best of Show. There is a $15 entry fee that includes a barbeque plate and a chance at lots of door prizes.

Barbeque will be available from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Area churches have come together to put on the Barbeque Festival and compete in three categories — pulled pork, chicken and ribs.  Trophies are awarded for the top three finishers in each category with a Grand Champion also awarded.

This year’s entertainment includes Faithful Witness at 11 a.m., Porter Family at 11:45 a.m., Faith Under Fire at 12:30 p.m. and Pinnacle Praise Band at 1:15 p.m.

All proceeds will go directly to the Broyhill Children’s Home to help them with this year’s Food Roundup, Cottage Activity Fund and Improvement Projects.  Last year’s festival raised $21,475.02.

Meal tickets can be bought at the festival and are $9 for adults and $6 for children 12 and under.  Plates will include pulled pork barbeque or smoked chicken.  All plates include beans, slaw, roll and a drink.
