NORFOLK-The folks with Norfolk Festevents have cooked up a delicious way to spend your Saturday.

This is the first year for RibtoberFest, which will feature beer and pork BBQ, live music, restaurant competitions, eating competitions and more. It's from noon to 8:00 p.m. in Town Point Park.

It's free to go, just you pay for what you want to eat.

Restaurants will have ribs & zesty pulled pork and all the traditional fixings - hush puppies, cole slaw, biscuits and more.

More than 40 different Autumn-style beers from 20 breweries will be set up in the Ribtoberfest Beer Garden. A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Up Center to help improve the lives of children and families; people with disabilities; and, adults in crisis.
