Listen to Laura Johnson’s community segment about the event aired on Radio Free ENC’s WNOS 105.9FM and 1450AM:
Bring your dancing shoes! Two popular local bands – “3-Day Weekend” and “Cold Biscuit” – will perform at BBQ in Blue Jeans, Friday, January 18, 2013, at the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center. Doors open at 6:00pm with dinner being served at 7:00pm. Wear your comfortable blue jeans and enjoy a great barbeque dinner including ribs, chicken, sides, and dessert.
Tickets are $25.00 ($30.00 at the door) and can be purchased at the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center, New Bern Firemen’s Museum, Mitchell Hardware, and the New Bern Fire Department. For additional information, please call 252-636-4087.
Funds raised at this event help support the many activities of the New Bern Firemen’s Museum including their plans to restore the Central Fire Station, circa 1928, located on Broad Street. The building will house interactive exhibits as well as the many important relics that have already been collected to further demonstrate the City’s legacy of firefighting. Attendees at BBQ and Blue Jeans will be able to make their own history and purchase a 4’x8’ brick or 8’x8’ paver to leave a legacy in support of this capital project.
