There will be ribs to be enjoyed and a good time to be had at Mark Twain Cave Saturday, September 12 from noon to 5 p.m. as the Hannibal Free Clinic hosts its first "Rib Fest" fundraiser.

A number of cooks who all believe they have the absolute best ribs recipe will be on hand vying for bragging rights, with unlimited sampling available for those who come to enjoy.

Along with ribs, there will be chips and hot dogs for the kids, along with Budweiser and Pepsi products available for purchase.

Music will be provided by Steppin' Back from 2-5 p.m.

Tickets for the Rib Fest are $10 for adults, $5 for kids 5-12, with kids under 5 admitted free.

Tickets are available at the Hannibal Free Clinic, Judy's Boutique Gift Shop in Hannibal Regional Hospital or from any Free Clinic board member.

The proceeds from the event benefits the Hannibal Free Clinic. The clinic provides eligible patients with basic healthcare services, assistance with medications, support for accessing other healthcare services and basic dental services.
