Penticton Western News enters the Penticton Rotary Ribfest sauce competition

The Rotary Penticton Ribfest kicks off today at Okanagan Lake Park as South Okanagan media throw down in a barbecue sauce contest.

Penticton Western News editor Kristi Patton and Black Press Creative graphic designer Sarah Tucker put their kitchen skills to the test creating a sauce. Reportedly some other media outlets used professional chefs to create their sauce for them.

The sauces will be judged by the pit bosses at 2 p.m. on Friday, June 29 as part of the opening ceremony.
