Grillin’ with Gusto

While some folks may consider grilling a backyard leisure activity, for the cooks at Grillin’ on the Green, it’s a competitive art. The annual fundraiser gives locals an opportunity to strut their best barbecue stuff, with the hopes of winning the favor of their neighbors as well as this year’s celebrity judges, including Lake County Sheriff Brian Martin and retired professional football player Dana Stubblefield. While guests taste selections, the local band LC Diamonds will play vintage rock, rockabilly, and blues; and there’ll be a car show and children’s water activities to check out, too. The event will be held on August 3, 5–7:30 p.m., at Lakeport’s Westside Community Park, which will receive proceeds from the event. Tickets are $10–$30 (ages 4 and younger get in free) and are available on (search on “Grillin’ on the Green”).
