Jumpin’ Jimminy it’s the JRBQ!
Well, that just snuck up on me! I kept thinking the bbq was far in the future, but here it is already – it’s tomorrow! GAH!!!
While it says it’s a BBQ, from what I can tell the only bbqing going on will be done by food trucks. So eat well before you go, and bring a picnic if you’re poor like me. There will be lots of things to do, so I’d rather buy carnival game tickets than spend money on food!
I guess they called it a bbq because it’s a fun gathering of country folk. The parking and entry are free, and you get to tour the Langley Events Centre and see all they have to offer. The best part is that all the money goes to Basics For Babies – and Clay will match the donations that he gets for his event! WOW!! That is so generous and admirable. #Respect.
Here is a link to the breakdown of the day:
The DJs will be there doing all sorts of fun stuff (it’ll cost you $10 to challenge them but that would be worth it if you got to knock Clay off his high horse… er… pedestal!) I’ve never been on a mechanical bull, so I don’t think now is the time to try it – if I’m going to fall down in front of thousands of people I’d better be smashed drunk so I don’t remember it!
It sounds like it’s going to be a blast – are you going?? If you would LIKE to go but don’t have a ride, I’m here to help! I will be driving from UBC to downtown to pick up Mel (JRFM’s uber fan!) and we will be heading out to the highway along either 1st or Grandview Highway. If you are ANYWHERE within 5 minutes of our route, we can pick you up! I have room for 4 more people in my van, though you may have to watch The Backyardigans on the dvd screen. 😀
So pack a lunch, throw on your cowboy hat and boots, and let’s DO this!! I’m so stoked, it’s going to be a BLAST!
Email me your address if you want a ride. And Mel, you’re in charge of navigation – I have no idea where the LEC is!!!
