Saturday Night BBQs – No more dates for 2013. Check back next spring for 2014 dates.

This Saturday night BBQ is a family favorite and sure to delight the young and young-at-heart. Attendees will arrive for a fun evening of games, crafts and a hearty outdoor dinner. Play a round of horseshoes or try your hand throwing a rope at the roping station.

Bring your camera and get pictures of the family at the Old West/Renaissance photo stand and dress-up station. The kids can make an ornament or decorate a bandana at the arts and crafts table.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite you’ll enjoy a dinner of flame cooked hotdogs, hamburgers and veggie burgers along with a wide selection of toppings. A variety of cheeses, bacon, chili, pineapple, avocados, sautéed mushrooms, sauerkraut and more are available to personalize your burger or dog. Baked beans, salad, watermelon, fruit pies and of course campfire S’mores will round out the menu. Complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks are included.

Afterwards the kids can take a swing at the piñata and then join in a treasure hunt for the golden horseshoe. A family water balloon toss finishes off the evening.

Some BBQs may have a special theme such as Mexican Fiesta Night and Renaissance Night. These themed BBQs will have special entertainment, crafts and menus. Watch this site for further details!
