Hilton Head Island’s 17th Annual Rib Burnoff ~ A Family Friendly Event

Hilton Head Island Rib BurnoffThere’s never a shortage of things to do and events to attend in Hilton Head Island, and we’re gearing up for another annual event happening this weekend, May 18, 2013!

Close your eyes and imagine the wonderful smells of hickory stoked fires, slow cooked ribs and pulled pork. Mouth watering yet? Then you’ll want to head to the Coastal Discovery Museum of Hilton Head for a premier barbeque event, the 17th annual Rib Burnoff, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club!

This is a very family friendly event where you can enjoy some of the South’s best BBQ and downhome music, complete with the smells I mentioned earlier! The kids can play on inflatable castles and slides in the free children’s area and run in the open fields. This year, each ticket will include 7 samples of either barbeque or ribs, and beer, wine, soda, hot dogs and ice cream will be available for purchase.

What makes the Rib Burnoff so enticing? The restaurants and gifted amateurs start cooking the night before to make their absolute best attempt to wow you with their food, because the better it is, the better chance they’ll have of going home with a trophy and bragging rights! You know you’ll get mouth watering BBQ when there’s a competition involved!

The Rib Burnoff is from 12-4pm. You can purchase tickets in advance for $12 (children under 12 are admitted free) and you can get them through any Kiwanis member, Burke’s Pharmacy, The Coastal Discovery Museum and User Friendly at 29F Hunter Road. If you get them at the door, they are $15.

For more information, you can contact Colin Carrigan 843-689-6070 or colincarrigan@userfriendly.com.

The 4 Events of The Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival and Concours d’Elegance

The annual Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d’Elegance is one of the most highly anticipated annual events in our area, and packs four awesome events into one week!  We thought the event may be interrupted by the severe hurricane that blew in along the East coast but, thankfully, everything is happening according to plan.

The Motoring Festival began on October 26, 2012 with the first of four events; The Savannah Speed Classic.  Held on Hutchinson Island in Savannah, GA, this event brings back Savannah’s racing heritage.  The Speed Classic is a unique race track experience offering an intimate look at the inner workings of racing!  With features such as hot lap rides and pit access, you’ll be strapped in at full throttle, up close and personal.

The second event, Motoring Midway, will be here in Hilton Head this weekend, November 3-4, 2012.  This fun event is unique to Hilton Head Island and offers an eclectic mix of motoring heritage and technology.  Exhibits planned for this year include: Life in the Service, On the Water, Two Wheels, Road to the Future and automotive-themed children’s activities.

The most nostalgic day of the Festival is CarClub Jamboree, is on November 3. With car clubs traveling from throughout the U.S, an eclectic mix of over 150 cars, including muscle cars, hot rods and European sports cars, a little bit of everyone’s story will be told!

Concours d’Elegance, the main event of the Festival, features over 150 classic vehicles competing for the coveted title of Best of Show, the Concours offers that “wow factor”!  This part of the festival will be on November 4.

Parking (including designated space for handicap parking) is available on-site at the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn for $10 per car and complimentary off-site/remote parking is available at the Hilton Head Island Public School complex with a shuttle to the event site.

You can purchase tickets online or at the gate and there are weekend and VIP packages available.  Bring the entire family and remember that kids 12 and under get in for free!

This is just one of the annual events here in Hilton Head Island that keep visitors and new residents flocking here all throughout the year.  Another reason just might be that the weather is still pushing 70 degrees the first weekend of November!

It’s going to be a beautiful weekend for the Motoring Festival in HHI, will you be there?
