There's a lot going on in the touristy town of Truckee these days. Check out www.truckee.com for details.
Meanwhile, the first annual Truckee Ribfest is planned for Father's Day (June 20) from noon to 4 p.m. at the Citizens Bank Plaza in west Truckee.
Pork ribs and side dishes will be on offer from six area restaurants and caterers: Jake's on the Lake, Six Peaks Grille, Smokey's Kitchen, Jax at the Tracks, Fiftyfifty Brewing Co. and Farmhouse Creations.
Tickets are $20, which buys three sample rib plates from the cookers of your choice. While you munch, enjoy free live music and a not-so-free beer garden.
"It's a first-time event, but we're looking forward to it becoming a Truckee tradition," said event chairwoman Brinn Wellise.
The Truckee Ribfest is a non-profit fund-raiser benefitting Relay For Live, a cure-for-cancer walk.
