Downtown Washington is jumping this weekend with a variety of events that have a wide appeal. Officially it’s the three-day Washmo BBQ, Bikes & Blues event, along with Grace’s Place Vintage Market, Washington Art Walk and a pop-up art gallery at Neighborhood Reads Bookstore.

There will be visitors from several states competing in the culinary art of barbecuing, with about 50 teams displaying their skills. A People’s Choice Tasting will take place Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. Blues music will fill the downtown section, Friday night, Saturday and Sunday. The bikes event will be Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. at Main and Cedar streets, the center of festivities.

All the events were listed in Wednesday’s Missourian.

The festival will be held rain or shine. If you are tired of the long winter, and want to be outside and enjoy some action, the place to be this weekend is in Downtown Washington!
