The three-day festival will feature live music, games for kids and, of course, over 90,000 pounds of smoked meat from competing vendors. But plans are in the works to include a new contest category that would allow casual </span>barbequers<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> to compete. Festival Director David Boggs said the decision to include the “In Your Backyard Pig Cook-Off” was a logistical necessity.</span></p><p> Wed, 14 Aug 2013 17:18:24 +0000 Rob Canning 33995 at http://wkms.org Organizers Ready For 19th Annual BBQ On The River Paducah Officials Condemn Historic Downtown Building http://wkms.org/post/paducah-officials-condemn-historic-downtown-building <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Paducah's downtown&nbsp;</span>Kresge<span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;building may be set for demolition after the collapse of a large part of its roof.
