An important community healthcare provider benefits from what has become an annual event Saturday.

The third annual Rib and Wing Fest runs from noon to 5 p.m. at the Mark Twain Cave Campgrounds.

The event is a fundraiser for the Hannibal Free Clinic.

Over 3,000 pounds of ribs and 300 pounds of wings will be prepared by 16 teams of cookers. The price of admission will get you unlimited samples, and the chance to vote on your favorite.

There will also be ice cream and musical entertainment all afternoon Saturday at the Hannibal Free Clinic’s Rib and Wing Fest.
