The fest continues Saturday with local favorites Red, White & Blues Band opening at 5 p.m., followed at 7 p.m. by the Junior Wells All-Star Tribute featuring some of the best musicians in the country, including local celebrity and blues musician Buzz Killman on harmonica. Trampled Under Foot, a blues band from Kansas City, closes out Ribfest.

The park district partners with the village of Vernon Hills and the police department and the Countryside Fire Protection District for this unique Lake County festival. Local civic groups, including the Lions Club, Rotary, and Knights of Columbus, provide many of the volunteers.

Admission is $5 and proceeds help support the park district's Family Scholarship Program.
