A bit of blues, ribs and other fun

Here's another contender for family fun in the food-and-music category: the Canal Winchester Blues & Ribfest. It's taking place today and tomorrow, Aug. 1-2, in historic downtown Canal Winchester.

This big old street party features live blues music, delicious food (including ribs, of course), children's activities, fan-cooled dining areas, and a beer & wine garden for adults.

The fun takes place from 5-11 p.m. today and again from 12 noon-11 p.m. tomorrow.
