Texas Monthly BBQ Festival

Texas Monthly held their annual BBQ Festival yesterday on the grounds of the Long Center. More than 30 restaurants from across the state had samples of their finest to share, and 3,000 attendees took advantage of it! The Austin Fire Department was a co-sponsor of the event, spreading safe outdoor cooking tips and wildfire safety messages throughout the day. Legendary Texas musicians Ray Benson and Jimmie Vaughn were also on hand, and Chief Kerr presented each of them with an AFD Challenge Coin. A great time was had by all...check out the photos below!
