Crowds gather for "Barbecue on the River"


A big crowd was on hand Saturday for the 18th Annual "Barbeque on the River" event in downtown Paducah, Kentucky.

There was lots of BBQ of course, but also live entertainment and crafts.

Fifty plus teams from western Kentucky cooked up their creations in hopes of taking home the coveted grand champion trophy.

The event benefits dozens of charities from around the area.

City leaders also say the three day event helps boost the local economy.

It wraps up Saturday evening.
