Elmhurst's annual barbecue competition and family festival highlights backyard grill masters as they prepare ribs and chicken for the judges. This year's contest will also include a pie and cookie bake-off. Families can purchase beer, barbecue, and root beer floats and enjoy live entertainment throughout the day. Kids may enjoy a giant slide, face painting, games, and visits from Wonder Woman and Spider Man. Proceeds benefit the Elmhurst Walk-In Assistance Network.
