Enjoy delicious local barbecue on the Evansville riverfront while supporting the continuing mission of United Caring Services during their upcoming "BBQ on the Bridge" event on Saturday, June 9th!

The event runs from 4:30 until 8:00 p.m. and will take place on the Ohio Street Bridge just east of the railroad crossing (the one we used to call the "airplane bridge" when I was a kid because the sound the car tires made as it drove across sounded like an airplane taking off).

Flying Pigs Barbecue will be cooking up delicious barbecue, and Lamasco Bar and Grill will be on site to help you wash it all down with a cash bar. Plus, Logan Dyer and Friends will perform live music starting at 5:00 p.m.

Considering the bridge's location, parking will be limited in the immediate area, however additional parking will be available at the Shirley James Gateway Plaza (298 South 7th Avenue) which is a short walk away on the Greenway Passage.

In the event the weather decides not to cooperate, the event will move indoors to the C.K. Newsome Center at 100 East Walnut Street in downtown Evansville.

Tickets are available online, or by calling United Caring Services at 812-422-0297. Seating is limited, so get your tickets soon!

Proceeds from the event will help United Caring Services continue their mission of providing shelter and other services to the homeless in our area.
