Bernard Blues & BBQ returned to the prep school's campus on Saturday. More than 75 vendors were on hand offering attendees a chance to browse collections ranging from handmade leather goods to stained class artistry and homemade birdhouses.
Setting the backdrop for the event were the aromas drifting through the air, enticing guests to enjoy a selection of ribs, pulled pork, and chicken while enjoying the soulful sounds of the event’s musical entertainment.
The event continues Sunday with performances from bluegrass group The Sinners and Alabama Blues Hall of Famer Earl “Guitar” Williams.
Hours for the event will be 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. with admission set at $10 — children 12 and under will be granted free admission. For an extra $5 donation though, guests will be entered for a chance to win more than $12,000 in cash prizes — including a first place grand prize of $10,000 — announced during the event’s culmination Sunday at 4 p.m. All proceeds from the event will go directly into Saint Bernard Prep School’s operational funds.
