The St. Bob-e-Q will run Saturday from 12 p.m. until 6 p.m., or while supplies last. Returning on Sunday will be the popular Sunday Chicken Dinner, including a 1/2 chicken, roll, coleslaw and piece of cake. And all weekend long, fair goers can enjoy roasted corn, fresh cream puffs, selections from the Mexican Cantina, Cafe Italia, corn beef and a Guinness at Duffy's Irish Pub, or Cajun-influenced items like seafood kabobs and jumbalya from the Vigil Light Cafe. Of course there will be plenty of lemonade, hot dogs, pop corn, pizza and ice cream on hand too.
