Saturday Night BBQ

Our Saturday night BBQ is a family favorite and sure to delight the young and young at heart. Our guests join us at 5 p.m. for a fun filled evening of games, crafts, contests, dress up and delicious food. You can play a game of horseshoes or try your hand at throwing a rope. Bring the camera and get pictures of the family at the dress up and photo station. The kids can make an ornament or decorate a bandana. After dinner the kids can take a swing at the piñata and then compete in the hunt for the golden horseshoe. A family water balloon toss finishes off the evening.

The regular BBQ menu includes hot dogs, veggie burgers and hamburgers cooked to order and personalized with your favorites from our extensive topping bar. Bacon, sautéed mushrooms, cheddar, Swiss and bleu cheeses, avocado, pineapple, chili, sauerkraut and more are available. Baked beans, salads, cake or pie and campfire s’mores round out the menu.

Just to shake things up a few of the scheduled BBQs this summer will have a special theme or guests with activities and (kid friendly) dishes on the menu to match. Themes may include a Renaissance Night with mock sword fighting lessons, Mexican Fiesta with traditional games or a Western Hoedown with line dancing lessons.
